On March 16th, 2013, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield left Earth’s atmosphere for a third time to make history as the first Canadian Commander of the International Space Station (ISS). During his five months aboard the ISS, Commander Hadfield took hundreds of photographs and shared them using social media, catching the attention of the world.

This installation includes 40 of Colonel Chris Hadfield’s beautiful and at times awe-inspiring images, along with his original messages tweeted from space.

Cape Farewell congratulates Chris Hadfield on his Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival 2013 Eco-Hero Award.

This Clement World

This Clement World is a fiercely creative and charismatic tribute to our rapidly changing environment, as seen through the prism of Cynthia Hopkins’ deeply personal lens and wild cross-disciplinary style. Performed live with a 15-piece chorus and band, This Clement World blends outlandish fiction and original avant-folk songs with Hopkins’ own documentary footage from an Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, infusing our global climate crisis with humour, poetics and urgency.
