Half of the world’s population lives by the coast, an increasingly precarious location – where the land meets the sea, where excessive development meets the power of nature, and where climate change impacts lives and ecosystems. Rising seas and climate change impact all of us but not in the same way. The Shore Line, a collaborative web documentary project, is a collection of interactive maps and over 40 videos featuring individuals who are confronting the threats of unsustainable development and extreme weather with persistence and imagination. The coast serves as metaphor and method – a way to challenge boundaries and narratives in addressing climate-disasters. This research-creation initiative was produced by Liz Miller and a team of collaborators including documentary makers, coders, biologists, artists, engineers, students, educators and more.
