Exhibit

This exhibit provides a platform to begin understanding the effects of rising sea levels along the coasts of Indonesia, Bangladesh, The Netherlands, Italy and the United States.

By the end of the century oceans are predicted to rise between .3 and 2.5 meters, which will result in major flooding in coastal cities around the world. The Sinking Cities Project aims to document this inundation through the stories of residents and the changing landscape of their cities.

This photo and video exhibit was produced by Marcin Szczepanski, visual communications director at Michigan Engineering, and Frank Sedlar, Michigan Engineering alumnus.

Join us for an exhibit opening event on November 16th, 4:00-7:00 p.m., in the Clark Library.
