Encounters: Artists in the Kermadecs

Source Organization: Pew Environment Group

08/25/2011 - In May 2011, artists from the South Pacific embarked on a journey to the seas around the Kermadec Islands (map). For six days, they followed in the path of explorers before them, from the earliest Polynesian voyagers to modern-day conservationists, to experience this extraordinary place, where globally significant marine life co-exists with underwater volcanoes and the deepest ocean trench in the Southern Hemisphere. Their voyage of discovery resulted in the creation of striking works of art, which now inspire us.
