Andrew Rogers’ land artwork ‘Rhythms of Life, Antarctica’ is the subject of a documentary that premiered on Foxtel Arts this week. The episode looks back on Andrew’s impressive ephemeral geoglyph made from Moraine gravel and created on a frozen lake at the Dakshin Gangotri Glacier in Antarctica. The work is the 47th structure and final link in the chain of a connected series of drawings on the earth, allowing the ‘Rhythms of Life’ project to span all seven continents. Environmental considerations were paramount and no foreign matter was introduced into the pristine environment. No lasting impression, nor trace of the structure, was left behind. This moment in time was captured in photographs, film and satellite images, which are showcased and celebrated in the Foxtel program. If you missed the premiere, you can watch a short video on the making of the work below.
