Metaphorical Antipodes, 2017 - present
Metaphorical Antipodes explores opposites and extremes in location, age, attitude and knowledge. Most simply, it shows how “here” effects “there” and “there” impacts everywhere. This concept is represented through photographing fabricated landscapes in the studio and documenting their exact locations on earth. The first chapter, The Arctic Circle and Antarctica, focuses on climate change and the impacts of global warming as seen in Greenland, Iceland and the Antarctic Peninsula. The second chapter, The Border Wall, reflects on the physical divide between the US and Mexico, commenting on our country’s current relationship and ideological differences with this boundary line. Chapter Three, The Library of Ancient Ice and The Arctic Refuge is forthcoming.
