Running from the 9th September until 20th September 2014, HighWaterLine Bristol is a participatory public artwork delineating 32 miles of potential future flood lines in Bristol.
Produced by Invisible Dust and Creative Catalysts, HighWaterLine was a project originally conceived by artist Eve Mosher in New York City. The original HighWaterLine was drawn at the 10-foot above sea level line in New York City in 2007. Much of the area covered by this line flooded during Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Bristol is increasingly affected by flooding during England’s wettest months. This project aims to instigate conversation about flooding and climate change across Bristol’s many neighbourhoods. HighWaterLine Bristol includes opportunities for locals to help draw the line with a sports chalkier, as well as discussion events.
HighWaterLine is presented by Invisible Dust in association with Creative Catalysts, and funded by Arts Council England and LUSH. For more information please visit the Invisible Dust HighWaterLine project page.
