Abstract (English)

" The High Artic stands at the front line of climate change. Cape Farewell's international team of artists and climate scientists have made three expeditions to this remote, frozen world, sailing on a 100-year old schooner, the Noorderlicht.
The team conducted oceanography xperiments and gained artistic inspiration from this fragile ice-bound environment. The aim of the project is to address the burning issue of climate change by providing first hand accounts and data, and produce artworks that provide a human scale for a problem that often seems too huge to comprehend.
This book celebrates the research and artwork that has evolved from this Arctic adventure and aims to inspire the reader to actively engage in the pressing realities of climate change." -- p. [4] of cover
