I was on a ship whilst on an artist’s residency with the British Antarctic Survey. On board I befriended the man from the human resources department. Each year he travelled down to the Antarctic for a catch up with the employees stationed on the ship and various remote Antarctic bases. Nowadays he works for the shipping company Maersk.
