Amy Balkin
Artist (USA)

As an artist, Amy considers how humans create, interact with, and make an impact on the social and material landscapes they inhabit. Recent projects include Invisible-5, a collaborative work touring California’s Interstate-5 corridor, San Francisco to Los Angeles. The project investigates the experiences those communities fighting for environmental justice along the I-5.

“As political and cultural awareness of global warming grows, the reading, meaning and value of the Cape Farewell voyages will also develop. I hope to return from the trip with an enhanced understanding of the Arctic as a system, and with an increased ability to speak to the impacts of climate change.”
