What might happen to our coastal homes in the future?

In this durational 8 minute video collage, artist Felicity Hammond depicts an imaginary coastal city that slowly submerges in water over 80 years.

The landscape, created with approximately 50 photographs of locations around the world that are most at threat of flooding due to climate change, is erased by water until completely submerged.

The artist interpreted the data from The UN’s IPCC Reports, and the WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate
