THE TRANSIENT NATURE OF THE ANTARCTIC
Artist Anne Brodie was awarded an Antarctic International Fellowship sponsored by the British Antarctic Survey and the Arts Council and spent nearly 3 months living and working in the Antarctic at the BAS base Rothera and refuelling depot Sky Blue.
She was involved in the day to day workings of the bases which included refuelling twin otters, digging out frozen fuel barrels, recycling paper and plastic, and keeping a natural blue ice runway clear of snow.
Over the time she was there she became aware of the extraordinary human / environmental interface. Some of her experiences and interpretations are recorded below.
