The Arctic Circle Residency

Had I been asked last year what was my dearest wish, I would have replied: a laboratory and free time, or a ship on the

ocean with all the instruments a scientist needs.

Sigmund Freud, 1875

This year Siobhan McDonald has been selected from an International pool of applicants to go on a trip through the Arctic Circle. In June Siobhan will be sailing the waters of Svalbard upon the SVAntigua with 20 award winning international innovators, explorers and artists. She will be among the last people in the world to visually capture this disappearing landscape, as sadly the glaciers are melting at unprecedented rates. Arriving by water will create an alternative point of entry to the place as everything will be seen and heard from the sea. www.thearcticcircle.org/.
