Project Pressure relies on the support of individuals to continue our ambitious work. Past donations have contributed to expeditions, including to Rwenzori, Uganda and Washington, USA. As an open source all material created by the charity is donated to the public domain so we need donations to maintain the archive and keep it free for all to use. 100% of donations in 2016 will be contributed to the upcoming summer expeditions.

Goudal and Project Pressure have teamed up to propose an expedition in France. The initial proposition is to explore the Chamonix region, where in she will create work that mirrors the shifting landscape. Goudal will construct large-scale photographic installations location, which will reflect the recession of glaciers
Significant reduction has been seen in the glaciers surrounding Mont Blanc, with approximately quarter of ice mass disappearing in the past 40 years. It will be Project Pressure’s first expedition to France and funding is urgently needed to ensure these glaciers are preserved in our archive.

This artistic pair have been looking at recovered objects that had been ‘rejected’ by glaciers. Working with established institutions and glaciologists in Switzerland they will document the preserved artefacts, from which they can create an exhibition of remains.
Initial research has found that glacial archaeology is, in the wake of climate change, uncovering artefacts at an unprecedented rate. This is happening around the world and teams in the Swiss are dedicated to excavating remains and documenting the arcehological finds so it is a perfect place to commence this project.
