In Rising Tide, water from the Antarctic Sound digitally rises above Antarctica's icy mountains.


There are three sections, each with a different landscape that has less snowpack then its precedent. In each section, the water slowly rises over the course of ten minutes: turning valleys into bays, mountains into islands, and the passage into open ocean.


By projecting the "rising waters" of Antarctica, onto Boston's City Hall, I wanted to link the city's history, present moment, and future, with the bigger picture.
