With a crew of artists and scholars I'm going on a expedition to the arctic pursuing my passion for glaciers, data, and the poles.

184 backers pledged $12,149 to help bring this project to life.

80% backed 54 hours to go! now is the time for the last push! and a possible art piece about you as part of this project

Dear Backers,

'After the Ice' is so close to the finish line! Now is the time for the last push.
I've been working very hard, getting the word out here in Brooklyn and in Manhattan, at events and art gatherings over the last few weeks. I've been handing out postcards and talking to people about the project. And in social media posting and sharing art that backers will receive. I believe every contribution is an important one. To me, it's just as important, the idea of coming together around ideas and the making of things, that is what this platform is all about.

So in thinking about that, I've decided I'd like to do a data piece that includes you my backers. I'm not sure what that will be yet, or how. But I know that this is something I would like to do, and include this as part of the series. So more on that later!

Lastly, please help me get the word out. I'd love to get this project across the finish line in the next 50 hours, hopefully with time to spare. That would be nice:)
If you are interested I would like to share with you an image that I posted on Facebook a few hours ago and people have been responding and reposting it. You can copy it from this page (it's at the top) or contact me if you want it in layers so that you can update the time and amount, or play with it. I'm open to your artistic collaboration.

OK, more news coming soon. Including highlights of where I'll be going and more about the expedition and the team. This campaign has been a lot of work. And so many things I've yet to share with you!

All the best!
Melissa F. Clarke
