Holderness, The Disappearing Coast
With a keen activist interest in climate change I created this project to demonstrate how knowledge and power can turn to greed, and as a result, damage the planets natural resources, resources we can't live without. I have addressed the impacts of global warming by focusing on the Holderness coastline in the County of East Yorkshire, showing increasing erosion due to rising sea levels and tidal surges. Being one of the fastest eroding coastlines in Europe I have examined the effects of land loss and how it affects residents both physically and emotionally. With underlying themes of geography and geology the work takes on a topographical study, highlighting places of human intervention through the medium of sea defences and other sites, which have simply been left to nature.
