“When regular patterns interact, unexpected symmetries are generated. Following the methodical and mathematical rotation of a striped pattern through ninety degrees from vertical to a horizon, the nine images in this book present a dazzling field that tests vision and suggests the blinding brilliance of the snowfield. The text, written by Arctic explorer William Parry, poetically illuminates the desperate search for landmarks. The reader moves through the book in parallel with the explorer advancing through the icy landscape.” – artists statement
