The formidable Drake Passage and the Antarctic Peninsula have been my home for the past few weeks. It's hard to describe the experience... The immensity of the environment and the majestic nature of what my eyes were witnessing is hard to put into words. They seem meaningless and infinitesimal. One thing for sure is that this is an environment that humans feel totally out of place and out of context... and I like that.
I'm about to depart on one of the more exciting journeys I have ever undertaken. Sailing to Antarctica! here's a couple of snaps from the morning of our departure in Ushuaia. internet is limited but we'll be posting updates on the facebook page here
The other night I went out and took a few photos while the rest of you were tucked up in bed. Sometimes I get so excited by the things that occur around us naturally, tiny water droplets suspended in the air, creating magical mist god rays from the street lights. Enjoy.
Beijing, it's a place of contrasts and a unique beauty. Coming from the west it definitely is an interesting place to visit as many of the websites I frequently use to portray my work are not viewable, which makes life interesting. The people are amazing, such a rich culture with a vast and complicated history, the districts of 798 and Caochangdi provide some of the most incredible spaces I've ever seen to view art. The country is so huge! I'd like to ride my motorbike off into the mountains.
Seoul is a powerhouse, feelings seem amplified here. You get a real sense of a nation going through rapid change and growth. There is real contrast to the city, in Cheonggyecheon huge skyscrapers are separated by a pristine creak that runs through the middle, a hidden oasis. Movement, Energy, Drive... Seoul Power
It feels great to finally scratch the surface of this great nation. Tokyo pours with energy. In Shibuya up to 20,000 people cross the street in a single change of lights. Yet the people have an underlying spiritual calmness that I adore. Peace out Tokyo - I'll see you again soon.
