Sea Level Rise: Visualizing Climate Change

Carrie and Eric Tomberlin

Asheville Masonic Temple

Bangladesh is considered by the international scientific community to be among the world’s most vulnerable populations to the effects of climate change. Bangladeshis are adapting with resilience and ingenuity utilizing community-based adaptations. In doing so, they provide an example of how the rest of the world needs to take action on a local, national, and international level to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change.

Photographers Carrie and Eric Tomberlin present a video loop of their photographs from Bangladesh, a cumulative form of photography that allows them to collect a range of time and collapse it into a singular allegorical narrative. As with the environmental issues the images describe, the accumulation of time reveals the situation more clearly than an individual moment.
