A digital archive collecting personal observations of our changing world.


As the spaces around us transform or disappear from the effects of climate change and human activity, remembering places that have held meaning for us is more important than ever. Impermanent Earth is an experimental art project that gathers memories of changing spaces across all forms of media. As the project grows and new entries are added, we hope to gain a better understanding of the effect climate change is having on our lives, and how people in other locations are dealing with and adapting to that change.
