Abandoning Cities

The world of humans enters a new social experience and trauma.  Never before have humans planned the forced abandonment of cities and nations.  Most abandonments have been instantaneous with tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanos and war- 0r – slow with the hope that years of drought would end.  We know that global warming leads to sea level rise that leads to the drownings.

Roving Pier

On gulf coast beach of Captiva Island, Florida, a rotting former dock pier was pulled up and down the seashore on a golf bag carrier.  At 100 yard intervals, the pier with carrier was installed for five minutes.  Conversations were had with beach goers about the future level of the ocean and the lost of Captiva Island.  The act of pulling, installing, talking and pulling was repeated for two hours on two different days in May, 2016.

While everyone complains about the quantity of seaweed on the Atlantic beach during the summer of 2015, I learned to have a little fun for a couple hours.
