Subglacial lakes -- Discovery and exploration
Vostok, Lake (Antarctica) -- In art
"Vostok refers to the largest subglacial lake in Antarctica. Lake Vostok is a relatively recent discovery and preliminary research suggests that it supports active micro-organisms that evolved in isolation for several millions of years. However, until scientists devise a way to study this uniquely pristine environment without contaminating it, its lifeforms remain as much a mystery as those beyond our atmosphere. Vostok drills deep to reveal a trajectory between deep ice and deep space. Collaborating printers: Kevin Auer and Abigail Uhteg (letterpress); Matthew Lincoln Yake (screenprint). Commissioned by Whitney Sherman as part of an artist residency funded by the Mixed Media Lecture Series through the Office of Academic Affairs / MICA."--Artisist website (http://bartalos.com/books/)<br>"Printed at Dolphin Press & Print."--Colophon.<br>Library's copy is no. 15 in an edition of 30, signed by the artist.<br>Letterpress printing.
