A Living Organism The Drowned World of Mekong Delta
- LocationMekong Delta
Using tools like fiction, infrastructure, and integrated hybrid systems, this project attempts to imagine new socio-ecological realities for humanity at the mercy of climate change. Using Mekong Delta as a testing bed, I have developed a fictional narrative regarding a new system of living that empowers marginalised communities living at the threshold of climate change. Formerly a leading rice exporter in Southeast Asia, Mekong Delta is facing issues of salinity intrusion and sea level rise, threatening their productivity. Occupying their new reality, the Mekong Delta community would build an alternative world upon the foundations of aquaculture, aquaponics and water desalination.
