    BACK IN AUSTRALIA

    Studio humming again at FAC

    After over 2 months in the Arctic Circle , between Kilpisjarvi and Tromso, I have returned to Western Australia as an aritist in residence with the Fremantle Arts Centre (FAC). Over the next two weeks I will be working inone of the beautiful FAC studios to develop new works in response to my experience of the polar night and Arctic environment.

    I will provide periodic updates from the studio as my work develops during my time with FAC. You can find these updates here.

    In the mean time I wish to thank to the Government of Western Australia's Department of Culture and the Arts for the award of an Artflight Grant to cover the cost of return travel between Perth and Finland in order to conduct the Polar Night Study.

    Thank you also to the Finnish Bioart Society and the Kilpisjarvi Biological Station for the opportunity to work as an artist in residence with Ars Bioarctica.

    A final massive thanks to Bevan Honey and the Fremantle Art Centre's AIR programme for supporting me as an Artist in Residence on returning from the Arctic and to all those who donated to my Pozible campaign. With out you neither of these residency opportunities would have been possible.
