Surge invitation

SURGE

Giannina Dwin and Freddy Jouwayed

The encroachment of the sea on the shoreline is an environmental concern of major proportions especially for coastal communites like ours. In this installation, I'm also using the surge of the sea as a metaphor not only to speak about the damage done to nature by global warming, but also to talk about other dangerous "surges" observable in our society and politics. These include cruelty toward those we perceive as "others," hate crimes, violence, fascism and the slow dismantling of democracy and truth by a country set adrift. We are beginning to see the flotsam of our wrecked mortalties in the rippling waves, awash in undercurrents of outdated brutal ideologies that history has showed us do not work.

Perhaps the surging seas come to provide us with the opportunity to be critical and examine our ethical conscience and our integrity.
