Arctic Listening Post

Jane Marsching

Artist Bio

Arctic Listening Post is an interdisciplinary collaborative series of digital images and sculptures that explore current and historic impressions of the Arctic. The works are composed using three-dimensional modeling techniques and draw on scientific data, as well as science fiction, vaudeville and architectural drawings. At once irreverent and scientific, the work explores the relationship of science and myth to the circumpolar landscape, while also detailing the collapse of the area due to environmental changes.
