The Coastorama Cooperative is Hope Ginsburg, John Byrd, Maxwell Parker and the students of the Fall 2019 USF class Sponge Exchange. Coastorama takes inspiration from the Spongeorama dioramas of Tarpon Springs, Florida to examine the effects of the climate crisis on coastal Florida and its species. Coastorama was produced for the Sponge Exchange exhibition at USFCAM, curated by Sarah Howard.
