“Climate change is not an equal-opportunity crisis. Though it affects everyone, it hits low-income communities and communities of color hardest. Vulnerabilities stemming from systemic racism create harmful conditions, such as poor air and water quality. Climate change magnifies these threats.
The wetter weather of our changing climate wreaks havoc on Chicago’s communities by worsening flooding in them.
N. Masani Landfair knows this reality intimately. Breathing to the Next Breath reflects her personal experiences with living in a chronically flooded home on the South Side. She relates the mental and physical tolls through a series of found-object collages, especially examining the insidiousness of mold and its lingering effects on home and health.”
