Publisher's description: In September 2011, a group of scientists, artists and writers embarked on an expedition to North-West Svalbard, the northern extremity of Norway. Travelling on a ship, the M/S Stockholm, each of them recorded the event from their own professional and personal perspective. The aim of the expedition was to discuss the discourse of the voyage regarding the environment and our relation to the land and nature. As such, this book turns out as an artistic account integrated by scientific documentation... The book is a narrative of the places visited by the expedition with the many different approaches shaping the views of the land encountered. The poetics of artists and photographers meeting the environmentalist writers and researchers of science and history tells the story of an expedition following its historic predecessors. The history of photography and earlier travel accounts as well as burning contemporary issues guided the journey into the Arctic.
