For my performance series, Provisions for Buoyancy: On The East Coast, I used the tracking app, TrackMe, to document the distance, duration, and path for each site-specific performance. I reflect on these documents as drawings.
In the images that follow, the performance paths are juxtaposed by a corresponding screenshot I took from the NOAA’s Sea Level Rise Viewer or Climate Central’s Surging Seas, Risk Zone Map, to visualize how areas would be impacted by a six foot rise in sea levels and help me determine the site for each performance action.
Additional documentation of this series can be viewed on the project website: http://www.provisionsforbuoyancy.com/
