Time Lapse Dance Workshop

The science team aboard the Healy has been incredibly generous in giving me impromptu tutorials in such topics as sea ice composition, melt pond mathematics, ice algae bio-markers and zooplankton reproduction. In return, I had the opportunity to teach a workshop in “Time Lapse Dance” technique. We broke the ice (so to speak) by practicing bumping into each other — an inevitability with the ship’s motion and a quick exercise in Brownian motion. Along the way we enjoyed some shipboard spinning and ended the class by dancing with floating fabric.
