1 comment
Dear Backers,

I'm thrilled to announce, with 14 days left to go, your support has brought 'After the Ice' almost halfway to the financial goal! 

Also, if you haven't seen it already, The Creators Project, a revolutionary partnership between Intel and VICE that supports visionary artists using technology in innovative ways, ran a fantastic article highlighting my process and this project. http://thecreatorsproject.com/blog/space-invaders-inside-melissa-f-clarkes-brooklyn-studio

This really should make you feel confident about the rewards you will be receiving, and for being part of a truly unique way of making art!

We still have a ways to go in reaching the goal and I'd love to have your friends and colleagues know about my project. Please consider sharing 'After the Ice' through social media and word of mouth if you have not done so already. Every pledge and all the interest matters!

More updates to come! Including expedition plans and highlights, and a web platform to keep you posted on my travels and evolving work.

Best Wishes!
Melissa F. Clarke
