Future Climate Souvenirs of New York (FeaturedFutures)


Future Climate Souvenirs of New York imagines six patches and a baseball cap from future nature reserves and ecotourist sites of New York. The project envisions scenarios where the city has established new nature reserves and regenerative schemes throughout its urban landscape, in response to the challenges posed by extreme climate change.

Why not stroll through a cloud forest atop Midtown’s skyscrapers, spot birds in the Lower Manhattan National Wetlands, observe species migrations on Ellis Island, take a carbon sequestering boat trip in New York Harbor, or feed the dodos in NYC’s De-extinction Lab? These attractions are illustrated through a series of embroidered patches, and an embroidered cap.

Invited by Constantin and Laurene Boym of Boym Partners to contribute to the NYCxDesignxSouvenir group exhibition at Hudson Yards in May 2024.
