Artist and 1X Everest Summittee Expeditioner, Dr. Sarah Jane Pell

Every space project needs an artist!

Artist, occupational diver, and researcher Dr. Sarah Jane Pell embarks on her first high altitude adventure. SJ passionately explores new ways to redefine our visions of future worlds from sea, to summit, to space through art-making. An experienced remote crew member and art and science collaborator, she is forging her skills in new ways: pioneering a practice to embody and contribute to the culture of exploration. SJ performs expressively and builds novel prototype apparatus to test and communicate insights from the field. Artifacts include sculptural, technical, poetic and media events. Her work promotes physical conditioning, creative visualisation and new forms of expressive communication for enhancing habitability and performance in extreme environments.
