Gerry Johansson, Antarktis.
Last year I had the pleasure to be shown prints from this work by Mr. Johansson in person. It is now being published in book-form by Libraryman.
Installation views, CUT FOLD REWRITE at FELDBUSCHWIESNER Gallery, Berlin. May 2 - June 14, 2014. Courtesy the artists and FELDBUSCHWIESNER Gallery.

Wish I could have made it to Berlin for this group exhibit I participated in. Installs look great.
Joshua Dudley Greer - Somewhere Along the Line
"Early settlers imagined the New World as a pristine, uninhabited wilderness – a landscape of unparalleled beauty, magnitude and possibility. Yet the driving impulse of expansion was rarely to commune with nature, but more often a desire to carve a garden from these wilds and create a new civilization, unique from all others. Lines began to be drawn, initially through agriculture and settlements, then railways and cities, and eventually the road.
Today, the American landscape is carved up by nearly 4,000,000 miles of roadways that lead us to just about anywhere we need or want to be. The Interstate Highway System in particular has permanently altered the way we experience the landscape and in turn, each other.
The ideas of mobility, prosperity, community and growth, cornerstones of the American Dream, still motivate many of us to strike out on the road in search of something beyond what our daily lives provide. For some it may be a job or a lifestyle, for others an escape. Whatever the motivation may be, we are all visitors somewhere.”
