Public lecture

Looking through a different lens: light and images from Antarctica

  • 8 September 2022
  • 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
  • Virtual IAS

IAS Visiting Fellow Associate Professor Jean Brundrit delivers a seminar on her research - 

Jean Brundrit is an artist and academic at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, where she teaches photography. Her research and art-practice are focussed on exploring the environment and the impact of rapid climate change in relation to visual representation. She is also interested in the advances of visualizing technology and how this can be utilized in art making. Her recent project, Over the horizon, an art project, brings these two interests together.

Jean will talk about her creative process - the use of novel technology (ice lens), her methodology and experience of taking photographs during a summertime, six-week sea-voyage to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. She will reflect on the research that informed the project’s conceptualization; how the project developed further after returning home; and her ideas that are emerging.

A small exhibition of some of the photographs from Over the horizon will be in the venue’s foyer.
