Chasing Aurora Borealis

Can you image yourself on a voyage to the North pole chasing the polar light with your camera and a sketch book? Well, for Jenni Mitchell,  an Australian oil/pastel artist this is a dream come true. She was recently awarded an artist-in-residency aboard a Norwegian coastal steamer in Norway.  She will be undertaking three voyages along the coastal ridge of Norway and into the Arctic Circle. The voyage is aimed at ‘Hunting the Light’ – the search for the Aurora Borealis. She will be collecting visual materials by way of photography and sketches as source material for her work. She has arrived to Oslo a couple of days ago and will continue traveling during January and February 2010. You can follow her voyage journal on this blog.
