Expedition Logbook

The artists doc­u­ment their ex­ped­i­tion, the pro­ject pro­cesses and im­pres­sions by post­ing sounds, im­ages, texts and
thoughts in the right column of this site. In the middle column, the team writes a daily journal. The left column is being
fed by an Ex­ped­i­tion Writer who lays open the un­der­ly­ing top­ics, as well as con­nec­tions between the artists’ pro­jects.
We are broad­cast­ing on the Gap Sta­tion, an on­line radio that is gen­er­ated out of the sound­ing works of the artists
and con­tent pro­duced dur­ing the ex­ped­i­tion. Also, we broad­cast daily in­ter­views with the artists. The player and
the archive of in­ter­views can be found in the top right corner.
