Artist Esther Tew (commissioned through the research project 'Hydrocitizenship') projected footage on to houses in Borth, mid-Wales as part of an artistic event. These included interviews with locals. It was an opportunity to also project footage from Kiribati ('Troubled Waters') in the same space, and to connect the local to the global, in terms of climate vulnerability. This fed into a continued dialogue with the public that was facilitated by Esther Tew in the same area over the same weekend. This was in great contrast to an Environment Agency (as they were then) meeting to consult with Borth locals over climate vulnerability, which was very poorly attended.The projections were experienced by many people who had come specifically for the event, but also drew attention from the many people who were passing on the way to the pub (to watch rugby!).
