Artwork & Writing > Metaphorical Antipodes, 2017 - present

Antipodes are diametrically opposite points on earth. The term was first used in 1549 in relationship to Australia and New Zealand’s position on the globe, contrasting with Western Europe. Metaphorical Antipodes signifies the place or condition farthest from “here.” I am searching for physical and metaphorical representations of extremes in location, age, attitude and knowledge. I began this multi-faceted project in 2017, exploring climate change by visiting the melting Ilulissat Icefjord in Disko Bay, Greenland and the circumpolar Arctic Tern as it struggles to reproduce in Westfjords, Iceland. There are many more images in progress and future chapters will soon find their way here....
