The History of Ice 9. On the Mountain of Myth From Art to Chart On the Edge of Time Bibliography Index "The Antarctic is famously the harshest ontinent; everyone who has ever visited it would fit into a football stadium. Terra Antarctica traces how humans have attempted to comprehend the most alien place on the planet, a continent that our species is superbly ill-equipped even to imagine, much less live on.
Over a two-year period, William Fox assembled the Antarctic's history of artistic, cartographic, and scientific images--both real and imagined--in order to understand how we represent its landscape.
The resulting work masterfully expands our understanding of human interaction with a landscape at the frontier of knowledge. Fox recounts unnerving experiences like being caught in a whiteout, camping on the volcano Mount Erebus during a hurricane, and taking frigid hikes past the edge of the mapped world.
Alternating lyrical first-person narratives with chapters that delve expertly into science and art, Fox creates a dazzling portrait of a vast empty continent. About the Author William L. Traversing the Great Basin.
He lives in Burbank, California. What brings humans to Antarctica? How do they make sense of the continent's vast emptiness? Everyone who has ever visited Antarctica would fit into a football stadium.
William Fox spent almost three months in Antarctica traveling and working with other researchers. Building on the common perception of Antarctica as a barren continent, Fox points to the many ways that life persists on the continent, from microscopic invertebrates to tiny insects, from Weddell seals and emperor penguins to human life and community, as found at McMurdo Station and the geodesic dome of the Amundson-Scott South Pole Station.
In prose that Library Journal calls "absorbing and easy to read," Fox describes encounters with scientists, artists, and even a handful of disoriented penguins. Fox recounts conversations with others working at the sites he visits and weaves in anecdotal information about the continent's weather, ecology, folklore, and history.
Continuing his lifelong fascination with dry places, Fox explores how we portray in painting, photography, and other art an empty space. He pursues multiple lines of study to describe Antarctic explorations and cartographic surveys, and how humans attempt to understand one of the world's strangest places.
Fox writes about how we make sense of our surroundings, turning space into place and land into landscape. He examines the artistic, scientific and cartographic methods used to make the blank space of Antarctica comprehensible.
Bill Fox e-mailed recently to say "I'm working on revisions for the Antarctic book, which will come out in fall of In order to do so we will have to push back publication from fall of to spring ofabout a five month delay--but it's worth it.
