    Lucy + Jorge Orta's 'Antarctica' installation at Hangar Bicocca in Milan suggests a utopic realm or safe refuge without borders and the 'equitable distribution of resources' as a new view on 'true globalisation'. Given that the Antarctic contains 70% of the planet's fresh water reserves and is off limits to military activity, where else should we turn for ideas that might thaw our numbness and paralysis to date?

    I thankfully spent Earth Day without a drop parachute or survival kit. Extremes abound on planet earth, but the edges are thankfully overlapping and softening like never before. There is unity as well in the colorful fabrics (flags) that flap in the breeze as emblems of what distinguish us.
