Australian artist Dr. Sarah Jane Pell is preparing to summit Mt. Everest in 2015. Her mission is to record the first person view of the expedition with a 360degree HD camera, while making site-specific artistic responses at various altitudes, so you too can summit in the experience.
Pell is in the rigorous phases of training leading to the prerequisite preconditioning of the mind and body for the ascent. She is also consulting with expeditionary artists, explorers and technologists to adapt creative tools to endure the cold remote heights. This will be her first professional Alpine expedition and seventh expeditionary-arts-research project, and a significant opportunity for extreme performance ‘discovery’.
