Program Manager:
Mr. Peter West

Event Number: W-492-P

ASC POC/Implementer:
Samina Ouda

Ms. Allyson Comstock (Principal Investigator)

Opelika, Alabama

Supporting Stations:  Palmer Station
Research Locations:  Palmer Station and surrounding area

Project Description:
The artist, expanding on her earlier collaboration with Palmer Station researcher Dr. James McClintock (B-027-P), will gather material to produce two photographic triptychs (a work of art divided into three sections, or three carved panels, which are hinged together and can be folded shut or displayed open). She will take additional photographs of the Antarctic landscape by making trips on land and on water. While on station she will view and learn about the research being conducted, with the goal of establishing additional collaborative relationships with other Palmer Station researchers.

Field Season Overview:
The artist will travel to and from Palmer Station on the ARSV Laurence M. Gould. She will photograph areas surrounding the station that can be accessed on foot, as well as visiting as many areas by Zodiac as time and space allows. She also hopes to observe the research being conducted on station and explore possible collaborative relationships with the various researchers.

Deploying Team Members:

  • Allyson Comstock (PI)
