The Biologically Enhanced Space Technology (BEST) team are planning to join the Arctic Circle Polar Expedition residency for Artists and Scientists to celebrate and illuminate the unique chemistry of the body and environment in the extreme North. Experimental activity will focus on the microbial and chemical reactions related to human performance and transits made under these conditions including, but not limited to, the changes and impacts on epidermis of the explorers and the hull of the vessel. An exhibition of works will be produced in addition to a documentary film and publication.
