“Water Table” is an in-ground art installation conceived and designed by artists Nancy Agati and Rebecca Schultz.
The installation is comprised of natural, permeable materials that have been locally sourced. These materials absorb water more efficiently than the surrounding pavement, which viewers will observe when it rains, and can be used in communities that experience coastal flooding. The image in “Water Table” is based on a map of Atlantic City, referencing the impacts of sea-level rise on the region.
“Water Table” was developed as part of the NJ Coastal Resiliency Art Program to creatively bring awareness to coastal risks and hazards that our state may face while addressing the need to involve and inform the public about these coastal hazard impacts and what actions they can take to reduce their risk.
