TOXI•CITY: A CLIMATE CHANGE NARRATIVE AND A TALK WITH ARTIST SCOTT RETTBERG (US)

Six fictional characters confront life decisions brought about by the toxic floods of rising seas and storms in a computer-driven combinatory film that never plays in the same order twice. This film follows six fictional characters whose lives have been transformed by sea-level change and flooding in an urban and industrialized region on America's North Atlantic Coast. Toxi•City has been a part of many festivals including the Venice Biennale, it asks how conditions of life would change if repeated storm surges and tides flooded the densely populated lands with toxins from the hundreds of sea-level petrochemical industry sites and post-industrial brownfields.

Artist Scott Rettberg is also a professor at the University of Bergen, Norway. His creative work has been exhibited both online and at art venues, including the Venice Biennale.

The event is a part of the literature and art event: Always Coming Home arranged by Publisher Eksil and Laboratory for Aestetics and Ecology (Dk/DE).
