Shoreline Change

A public art installation
Created by Nathan Kensinger and Nate Dorr
Waterfront Alliance’s Art At The Blueline
South Street Seaport Museum, Manhattan, New York
July 14-August 2, 2021

Shoreline Change is a site specific video installation of six experimental documentary films created by Nate Dorr and Nathan Kensinger. These works explore coastal areas in New York City that are undergoing dramatic transformations, due to climate change, environmental degradation, and commercial development. During a month-long installation, the artists projected these films onto maritime landmarks throughout the historic Seaport District, linking the neighborhood’s endangered waterfront to the city’s present-day shorelines.

Shoreline Change was created with as part of the Waterfront Alliance’s climate change public art series Art At The Blueline. It was made possible with the support of the Waterfront Alliance and the South Street Seaport Museum.
