The original public artwork on the New York city waterfront that created an immediate visual and local understanding of the affects of climate change. Eve marked the 10-feet above sea level line by drawing a blue chalk line and installing illuminated beacons in parks. The line marks the extent of increased flooding brought on by stronger and more frequent storms as a result of climate change.
During the summer of 2007, Eve walked, chalked and marked almost 70 miles of coastline. As she was out in the public creating the work, Eve had a chance to engage in conversations about climate change and its potential impacts.
