“Climate change is a global problem. The planet is warming because of the growing level of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. If this trend continues, truly catastrophic consequences are likely to ensue from rising sea levels to reduced water availability, to more heat waves and fires.” – Malcolm Turnbull



“A 2019 report by Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) found that rising sea levels could put $2–14 billion of drinking water, wastewater and stormwater services, roading and other infrastructure at risk.”



Currently one in seven people in New Zealand live in flood-prone areas.



This body of work explores these concepts and the effects of global warming on New Zealand. As the sea encroaches on our habitat, the structures of mankind begin to distort, to become unclear and the images point to a time when there will be no safe dwelling place.
