This commissioned piece is brought to you by Mount Allison University’s Centre for Global Justice.
This piece is part of an ongoing series of works titled “defining boundaries”. Void of political boundaries, it explores the boundaries that exist between land and water. In today’s political climate, political borders can be challenged, reformed, and used to separate people. Although climate change and its forces does not recognize political boundaries, rising sea levels and global temperature will inevitably challenge our relationship with our boundaries, as water continues to reform where it meets land. This inevitability will scar the Earth and leave it raw, both politically to us humans, but also geographically. As deforestation runs amiss, land fills fill up, and our water becomes polluted, we will no longer be able to hide our impacts.
