Preparing to animate Treaties

Antarctic scientist and materials conservator Janet Hughes.

Antarctic scientist (chemistry), designer and materials conservator Janet Hughes comes to visit. She will help with project planning and making whales for us to animate at this month’s workshops at the Victorian College of the Arts. Janet presented the animation ‘Seeding Treaty’ in at the HASSEG conference in Ushuaia on behalf of me and Maddison. Janet’s conference paper was on contributions to an early Antarctic expedition by two Norwegian Sami and other Indigenous peoples’ connections to Antarctica.
