The artists will collaborate with the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM), the Met Office and a local primary school to create a new piece of work for the city. Working with pupils from St David’s C of E Primary School, they will investigate Czigane’s remains – including his skull, skin and collar – which are held in the RAMM collection. Meteorological data from Scott’s expedition will also be considered for its relevance to today’s climate research.
