Apocalyptic Projected Waterlines Depict a City Underwater

The Watermarks Project, going on this week in Bristol, England, is using projectors in a pretty interesting way. Artists are superimposing plausible high-tide lines onto buildings, demonstrating life should the Greenland ice cap melt.

We believe that most (or all) of these shots are just photoshops teasing the actual projector installations. But it seems like a striking idea—to be walking around your city and see a familiar building half-submerged would really put somewhat incogitable concepts like "global climate change" into tangible perspective.
