I’ve returned from the expedition and am giving a talk about my experience and the new expeditionary trajectory of my practice at VCU on April 25th. Come check it out!

Leaving Ushuaia for Puerto Williams, Chile tomorrow morning and crossing the Beagle Channel! For the most up to date look at the images I’m collecting check out my Instagram Feed: @solemncircus


My flight for Argentina leaves next Friday, February 2nd, 2018! I play to take a trip this weekend to Williamsburg and Virginia Beach to test my recording equipment and pick up more gear. More soon…

My project shares the story of historic and contemporary researchers in Antarctica from a female perspective, and creates a modern set of inclusive expedition documentation, using both     traditional – photo, video, and audio – and modern techniques – 3D scanning, modeling, and printing. Through research visits to Oxford University and Cambridge University I will study original prints of expedition imagery from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration, and train my eye to capture dynamic documentation of my own Antarctic sailing expedition in February 2018.

Check back here periodically for updates!
