Set in the not so distant future, High Arctic is a monument to an Arctic past which invites us to think about human impact in the Arctic region and contemplate its fragility, its beauty, and its scale.

High Arctic is based on Creative Director Matt Clark's Cape Farewell expedition to Svalbard.

Cape Farewell was conceived in 2001 to help communicate the science of climate change on a human scale through the lens of culture.

Poetry: Nick Drake
Sound: Max Eastley and Henrik Ekeus
