Antarctic Item 049

Antarctic Item 048 is actually two items: a large screw and a small bolt, both beautifully corroded. The pair was kindly contributed to the Long View Project by Sharona Thompson who, like Crunch Noring, has spent several summer seasons in Antarctica.

Based at McMurdo Station, Sharon works as Vehicle Operations Supervisor for the U.S. Antarctic Program. She’s also an artist who works with found material, and clearly has an eye for exquisite oxidization. Thanks Sharona!
