Contour Drop

A topographical map is used to capture the physical characteristics of the land. Swirling contour lines connect areas of equal elevation revealing the hills and the valleys, the flat plains and the waterways. Elevations and depths are all relative to each other.

In this artwork, the artist uses the beauty and fragility of the the contour lines to capture the vulnerability of the land to rising sea levels, coastal erosion, global warming and impact of climate change.
