There is a timelessness here at what seems like the edge of the world, daylight from about 3am to nearly midnight and barely any darker in the hours of ‘night’.

Yesterday, waking to watch the sunrise from my window I noted how it was rising only 90 degrees from where it had set five hours previously.  During our last two weeks here the daylight will increase further, by about 8 minutes each day – and after we leave there are still three weeks to go till the high-point of the sun’s year here in the North.

We work in the studios whenever we wish; the space is barely a dozen steps from our bedrooms.  Our time is our own and our work unfolds within this quiet space where, through the studio window, there is a vast view north towards the Arctic where day has already fully taken over from night.
