Svalbard, a mountainous Arctic archipelago of over 61,00sq Km, 60% glacier and just 10 degrees from the North Pole.
In October 2013 I was invited to participate in a three week creative residency programme, organised by the New York based arts charity The Arctic Circle, on board a traditionally rigged tall ship with 27 other internationally acclaimed artists.

"The Arctic Circle is a nexus where art intersects science, architecture, and activism - an incubator for thought and experimentation for artists and innovators who seek out and foster areas of collaboration to engage in the central issues of our time."
