The third episode of Art of Interference features water in perhaps its most overwhelming form: floods. Reflecting on our own experiences of living in flood-prone areas, we spoke with artist Eve Mosher whose work High Water Line brings site-specific art to a new level. Eve discusses the importance of engaging communities in complex climate issues, understanding storm predictions, and making more room for the imagination in our conversations about climate change.

Mosher’s invitation to meditate on the real and increasing dangers of flooding point us to examine the innovative methods scientists, researchers, Dutch neighbors, and others are leveraging to prepare for watery futures. 

In this episode, we also turn our attention to a flood simulator developed by Vanderbilt University researchers, reflect on the tenuous future of some of our beloved homes, and discuss various flood myths of past and present–all to the tune of a song about unicorns.
