On June 7th, 2013, I boarded the Northsman along with a team of scientists and artist for a week long adventure with the focus of marine trash. This project was conceived by Howard Ferren at the Sealife Center in Seward, Alaska. His drive for public awareness on the issue lead him to the Anchorage Museum for a collaboration on the subject.
The trip was amazing. Accessing remote beaches and survey and collecting trash. Meeting folks that have made cleaning up these beaches their life and passion. Our grand finale day was helping the katmai national park service clean up the beach at Halo Bay.
The GYRE exhibition will open February 2014 at the Anchorage Museum. I will continue to write more on my process to produce my piece for the exhibition.
