With “Venice is Not Alone,” I illuminate the threat rising seas pose to coastal cities worldwide. From New York to Jakarta, major metropolises face increased flooding risk, studies show. Rising oceans are an urgent environmental crisis. Through my art, I hope to raise awareness and spur action against climate change. No one region can stand alone. Protecting earth’s great cities demands united global efforts. My work sounds the alarm yet conveys hope that we can still turn the tide.
