Since 2007, Swiss artist Marie Velardi has been drawing islands that are most vulnerable to sea level rise, mainly small, low-lying coral islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

“Terre-Mer” (Land-Sea) is an ongoing research and artistic project developed by Marie Velardi about the movement of different coastal lines through time.
