About 36.5

36.5/A Durational Performance with the Sea is a global performance piece made in collaboration with water, consisting of a series of installations and video artworks by Sarah Cameron Sunde, a New Yorker and interdisciplinary artist. Shocked by Hurricane Sandy’s impact on NYC, Sarah was moved to use performance art to bring attention to rising sea levels and water’s impact on us in the climate crisis while deepening people’s relationships with the water surrounding them. For the past nine years, she has been traveling the world, standing, for full tidal cycles, in bodies of water near communities most likely to be impacted by rising sea levels in the near future. This performance has taken place in Maine, Mexico, San Francisco, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Kenya, Brazil, and Aotearoa-New Zealand. For its final installment, 36.5 now lands here, in New York – Where it all started.

On September 14th, 2022, Sarah will stand for a full tidal cycle (7:27am – 8:06pm) in the NY Estuary/East River; the water directly off of The Cove where Astoria meets Long Island City in Queens. Your interest and involvement in this project are what make it what it is – We’re so happy to have you and can’t wait to see you in September!
