Standing by the margin of the Ross Sea at Botany Bay, one of Earth's most isolated places, one is confronted by physical isolation subservient to time's isolating touch. In this place, ghosts of struggle and survival are ever-present. A winter of darkness marks one of the most desperate and prolonged ordeals of human endeavour, though eight men survived, the traces of Scott's expedition remain caught in Zephyr's frozen breath.

This body of work explores aura using images captured by Len Gillman during a scientific expedition to Antarctica, working mostly alone setting up GPS points, his photographs record the omnipresent terrain that is Antarctica. Artists Sue Jowsey (of F4 Collective) and Andrew Denton collaborate with Gillman to create an exhibition exploring physical and psychological isolation.
