Dan Harvey

Dan Harvey has collaborated with Heather Ackroyd since 1990. In 2007, Ackroyd & Harvey created their most ambitious public artwork to date, FlyTower on the National Theatre’s Lyttleton flytower. Here the artists grew seedling grass directly on the exterior of one of London’s landmarks, transforming this iconic building into a living artwork of massive proportions. Since 2003 Dan and Heather have made five expeditions to Svalbard with Cape Farewell, investigating and responding to the effects of climate change. Their major work, Stranded was created for the Cape Farewell exhibition Art & Climate Change. Dan voyaged with both the Youth and Greenland Expeditions in 2007. (Updated 2008)
