Exhibits: Arctic Perspective Initiative (May 21 to September 30, 2010, London)

The Arts Catalyst – An exhibition of photographs, videos, maps and architectural models from work by the Arctic Perspective Initiative curated by The Arts Catalyst … Arctic Perspective highlights the cultural, geopolitical and ecological significance of the Arctic and its indigenous cultures. The London exhibition presents work from the project’s collaboration with the people of Igloolik, Kinngait, Iqaluit, Mittimatalik and Kanngiqtugaapik in Nunavut, Canada, and other Arctic communities. The focus of this work is the design of a habitable mobile media unit, and infrastructure, to be powered by renewable energy sources. Designed to be used by Inuit and other people of the Arctic for creative media production such as filmmaking, communications and monitoring the environment, the unit’s mobility is essential for those living away from settlements for periods of up to two weeks, moving, living and working on the land.

On display at the Canada House, Trafalgar Square, London from May 21 – Sept. 30, 2010.  API project website includes links to press release (PDF), blog, video, events, news and events, winning projects (PDF), and more.
