In her second collection of poetry, Where the Air is Rarefied, the culmination of a long-term collaboration with printmaker Pat Gregory, Susan deepens her exploration of environmental and mythological themes relating to the Far North.
In the process of making the work, Susan and Pat drew on a wide variety of sources, including polar explorers’ narratives, Inuit folk tales and their own travels in Northern, sub-Arctic and Arctic regions.
