Description

How does the human mind transform space into place, or land into landscape? For more than three decades, William L. Fox has looked at empty landscapes and the role of the arts to investigate the way humans make sense of space. In Terra Antarctica, Fox continues this line of inquiry as he travels to the Antarctic, the "largest and most extreme desert on earth." Interweaving artistic, cartographic, and scientific images with anecdotes from his three-month journey to the Antarctic, Fox creates an absorbing and readable narrative of the remote continent. Through images, history, and firsthand experiences--snowmobile trips through whiteouts and his icy solo hikes past the edge of the mapped world--Fox brings to life a place that few have seen and ultimately offers us a look into both the nature of landscape and ourselves.
