"Materials from this body of work were collected when I participated in the Arctic Circle residency in Svalbard, Norway aboard sailing ice breaker tall ship, the Antigua. About 20 other artists, poets and writers sailed in and around the fjords of Svalbard and then up to the pack ice of the North Pole. An 11 minute video, photography and plant collections were made. Additionally, plants, melting glacial ice and arctic beach plastic was documented using cyanotype."
