In September of 2007 Ellie Ga joined the Tara, a research vessel drifting in the upper reaches of the Arctic. The Tara was the second boat in history constructed to purposefully drift indefinitely in the frozen sea. Ellie joined the crew of ten, as the only artist on board, for the last half-year of the expedition. She maintained a close conversation with us, reporting with sounds, images and texts via email and the occasional satellite phone call. These are some excerpts from Ga’s sound dispatches from the Arctic.
