Returning to Greenland

By Cape Farewell // Monday 2 Feb // 13:28:11 // View

In September 2008 Cape Farewell returned to Greenland to visit the spectacular Disko Bay and continue the work started in 2007. The Art/Science crew began their 10 day sail in West Greenland, visiting the Disko Bay area and Jakobshavn Glacier, one of Greenland’s largest glaciers moving at a faster rate than ever before, losing 20 million tons of ice every day.

Working in partnership with the British Geological Survey, the scientists extended their investigations of climate change with extensive surveying below the seabed.

The arts crew, dominated by an international array of musicians including Laurie Anderson, Vanessa Carlton, Jarvis Cocker, Feist, Robyn Hitchcock, Ryuichi Sakamoto, KT Tunstall and Martha Wainwright also featured artists, comedians, architects, film-makers and journalists.

Follow the 2008 Disko Bay Expedition in blogs from over 40 artists, musicians and scientists as we sailed through the extraordinary Disko Bay. During the voyage we brushed aside snow and broke out our portable satellite gear to broadcast text, images and video direct from the deck of the boat. Check the expedition website, subscribe to the podcast or view the galleries of images and video to journey with us.

Big thanks to all that have followed our voyage so far. It’s not over yet – the site will continue to grow and develop (especially over the next few days as we sift through memory cards). I think for most of us the return to dry land, civilisation and bright lights has hit us hard. So please bear with us as we re-group, digest and try to stop randomly swaying from side to side. Use the menu alongside or calendar below to read the latest posts added since the expedition returned.
