The first exhibition in the National Maritime Museum’s new Sammy Ofer Wing, High Arctic is “a monument to the Arctic past set 100 years in the future,” say its creators United Visual Artists…

The installation consists of 3000 columns, each bearing the name of a Svalbard glacier which will disappear due to climate change. Visitors use a UV torch to activate the names and a series of reactive projections in the 820 square metre space. In addition, poems by Nick Drake tell the story of our relationship with
the Arctic since the first explorers went there in the 4th century.
