Clear Spot

Polar Patterns. Antarctica is an abstract and liminal space simultaneously absent and present. The way we inhabit Antarctica increasingly reflects the way we live on the rest of our planet. Rather than consider it a place on the edge of elsewhere, Antarctica’s remote settlements provide a model of a future capable of withstanding the uncertainty and disruptions that inevitably awaits. By Philip Samartzis. [Repeated Tuesday 10am.]
