Drowning NYC is a transmedia storytelling; an experimental pilot of a story that is told by actors and narrative devices staged over the Internet and in public spaces of a few selected New York City neighborhoods. The story informs the audiences about rising sea levels due to global warming and how urban populations will cope with it. The genre is theorized by the artist as Recombinant Fiction, a political and pervasive form of transmedia fiction.
This project proposes new pedagogical instruments, innovative activist strategies, elaborate media experiments, cutting-edge forms of theatre and cinema, questions about reality perception/construction.
