We’re pleased to announce our 2018 Summer Resident has been Raewyn Martyn. While in residence at the Caselberg House, Martyn researched the biomineralisation processes of cellulosic organisms like phytoplankton and their relationship to new understanding, emerging from recent marine core drilling of sediments connected to the Zealandia continent, ongoing seismic activity, and also oil and gas industry activities.
Martyn has been at Broad Bay sinceTuesday 9 January and finished her time at the House and Studio in early February. If you would like enquire about Martyn’s residency, please contact the Blue Oyster Director Grace Ryder: firstname.lastname@example.org
