'Variable Boundaries' is a series exploring Charleston's complex relationship with the seas and rising waters. Since its settlement, Charleston's population has been manipulating the lowcountry landscape through our interactions with the environment. The City was built just above sea level, and it seems that the boundaries between the water and the land have never been more fragile. Charleston poet TyQuan Morton express the gravity of the situation best: These King Tides are before us. / And Mother Nature wonders, / When will they wake up?
