Above: Blue Fractals, Erebus Ice Tongue Cave is the subject of an “Art in Focus” conversation led by Fairfield University Art Museum Curator of Education Michelle DiMarzo on March 14 while Walking in Antarctica was on view there, now available on YouTube.


During February-March, the Fairfield University Art Museum hosted the exhibition and a slide talk on opening night in which I introduced the show and provided background on what it's like to live and work in Antarctica and what motivated me to pursue this project. Over 100 people attended the live event, which was also live-streamed and recorded and can be accessed on their YouTube channel. There you can also find a two-minute walkthrough of the exhibition set to music and an episode of the monthly Art in Focus talk by Michelle Di Marzo, Curator of Education and Academic Engagement, focusing on Blue Fractals, one of the ice cave photographs in the exhibition. The museum also created an online interactive 3D walkthrough that you can navigate through and play the clips from the audio tour. Below are all the links.
