In 2011 NABROAD supported The Clipperton Project through development of a tablet app. The Clipperton Project invited a group of 16 artists and scientists from 6 different countries on a three-week journey to this isolated French atoll in March 2012.
Clipperton is an uninhabited French island located 1250 kilometers from the Mexican coast. The scientists will undertake studies on Climate Change and the Biosphere whilst the artists produce work based on the history of the island and the voyage there. All work (scientific and artistic) will then be exhibited in a variety on institutions, museums and foundations over the course of the ensuing years, and a book will be published reflecting this work and the journey undertaken.
The island’s history just as much as its ecosystem are utterly unique, and continue to reside well outside human experience, something increasingly rare in today’s world.
Remarkably, despite being a deserted island last populated in 1917, it has a postcode; (98799 – Fr). It has no drinkable water (outside of its eutrophic lagoon), and its main residents are poisonous crabs and rats literally left over from sinking ships.
