The map shows two perceptions of the world. On the first glance we see how the world looks today. As we look through the glasses the red colour on the poster disappears and we can see how the world will look in the future, if we take no further measurements towards stopping global warming.
As the sea level rises it will effect the world as we know it today. Therefore in addition to the change in water and land coverage, pictogramic illustrations were added to show how our everyday lives will change.
