Based on the answer that ten Vancouver arts professionals gave to the question "If you were to be banished to a desert island, by yourself, for the rest of your living days, what one object would you choose to take with you?" Survival Kit contains photographs of the resulting selection of items, custom fitted with individual flotation devices by Hadley + Maxwell. Each portfolio of ten images is housed in a custom-modified archival container. The portfolio is an edition of ten, and was published in 2006.

Hadley + Maxwell have exhibited and published their collaborative work across Canada and internationally, most recently at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver and Western Bridge in Seattle. In 2005 they received a VIVA award, and in 2006-7 participated in the international residency program at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Survival Kit is representative of their continuing interest in collaborative processes with individuals and communities.
