As an artist in residence, (upon invitation from Jennifer Miksis-Olds, and Kristina Durocher, the curator at the Art Museum at UNH, where I have several large sculptures on exhibit) my role is somewhat unusual, to say the least. I’ve been incorporated into the scientific process on the ship, rather than being left to my own devices, which is what happens at most artist residencies.
This is the fourth ADEON cruise, and we’re slowly accumulating little habits and traditions among the science crew. These include things like the PIs bringing out special treats for after we finish up all the tasks at each site (it was Almond Joys and Mounds after the last one), and the epic night shift vs. day shift board game each cruise (to claim gloating rights until the next trip, of course).
