In Extremis (in-progress) 

In Extremis
is a multimedia artwork that examines the effects of climate change and human impact on the South Carolina coastline and the ways in which the eroding salt marshes impact the surrounding landscape to create ghost forests. As marshes erode, salt water encroaches on the maritime forests, slowly killing living trees and turning them into decaying lumber. This work is a search for transitional landscapes and methods to quantify them.

This work is currently in-progress.
