An art installation by Carolina Aragón, assistant professor of landscape architecture, is currently on display in the World Bank atrium.
Aragón’s work, “High Tide” is an artistic abstraction of a marsh landscape, using translucent disks placed at varying levels, marking the various levels of past and predicted floods, bringing attention to the shifting boundary between land and water.
The display is part of “The Art of Resilience” exhibition featuring artists from around the world who are using their art to advance resilience to disasters and climate change. 20 works of art will be on display in the World Bank atrium for a three-month exhibition, which started with an opening event on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
“High Tide” was first installed in 2016 on the the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy in Boston. This 2019 version shows projected sea level rise for Washington D.C. for 2050 and 2060.
