Het Wilde Weten welcomes our new member Esther Kokmeijer:
“In her work she mainly focuses on the ‘Global Commons’. A term typically used to describe international, supranational, and global resource domains. Global commons include the earth’s shared natural resources, such as the high oceans, the atmosphere and outer space and the Antarctic in particular.
For many of her projects she collaborates with scientists. Her work has been exhibited and published worldwide. For various projects, she has visited 84 countries. Seasonally she works as an expedition photographer and polar guide, in the Arctic and Antarctic. She is the founder of ANTARKTIKOS, a magazine that is solely dedicated to Antarctica and brings together art and science, (antarktikos.com), co founder of Cosmic Water Foundation (cosmicwaterfoundation.com) and part of the art collective If Paradise Is Half As Nice (ifparadiseishalfasnice.com).”
