Climate Imaginaries at Sea: Reflections on Water
Project Climate Imaginaries at Sea: Reflections on Water explores how digital heritage collections can be used to imagine future climate change which is a prerequisite for accepting the inevitable change and imagining new possible ways of living in and with the crisis. The project team is hosting creative workshops where fragments from the audiovisual collection of the Netherlands Institute for Sound & Vision are being used as a launch pad for imagining how people will live in the Netherlands with the rapidly rising sea levels. Participants draw their imaginaries by hand and also AI techniques for generating fictitious landscapes are used. This participatory method of collectively imagining future scenarios through heritage allows participants to see a strong correlation between the past, present and future. While the climate crisis is a grand and often rather abstract topic detached from the lived reality of many citizens in Europe, this exercise allows participants to clearly see its impacts in environments familiar to them.
