Hidden Depths

  • Dunedin New Zealand (map)

Claire has spent two seasons in Antarctica working collaboratively with US polar scientists. In an image-rich presentation, Claire spoke of her relationship to The White Continent, focusing in on the calligraphic beauty of ice and the hidden wonders of the microcosmic world beneath its surface.

She shared some of the joys and challenges of inter-disciplinary collaboration, drawing parallels between image-making and scientific processes. Underwater film footage illustrated various ArtScience projects embarked upon during the summers of 2005 and 2008; the audience was also introduced to Notodendrodes antarctikos, the world’s smallest tree and the only micro-organism currently on our list of endangered species.
