John McCormick and Adam Nash - Wild System were the 2019/20 Australian Antarctic Arts Fellows with the Australian Antarctic Division. We sailed on the final Antarctic voyage of the icebreaker RSV Aurora Australis, collecting data from the ship, the voyage, the scientists, expeditioner  and the crew for the entire six week voyage. We used lidar scanning, photogrammetry, drone videography, and ambisonic audio recording, among other methods to capture the energy and activity of the voyage. We were also fortuante enough to spend time on Mawson and Casey stations experiencing the icy continent and station life first hand.  What an incredible experience it was and we feel blessed to have had the opportunity. We collected so much valuable data and are working at transforming it into artistic expressions of the experience for others to enjoy.
