SIX DAYS ON THE SIKULIAQ

9x11 handmade screen-printed photo book made up of both digital and film photographs. Six  copies made.

"Over the course of six days, I accompanied Oregon State University’s Ocean Observatories Initiative research team aboard the Sikuliaq, a research vessel from the University of Fairbanks, Alaska. The OOI team ventures out along the Washington and Oregon coasts twice a year to deploy and recover marine equipment that measures multiple physical, chemical, geological, and biological variables in the atmosphere, ocean and on the seafloor. 

 

For many people, this cruise wasn’t their first. But for a select few, including myself, it was their first time out to sea for more than a day. These are the photographs of moments, OOI team, Sikuliaq crew, and ocean landscapes from my six days on the Sikuliaq."
