“Fraser’s Penguins,” portions of which appeared in The New Yorker, warns that what’s happening on the Antarctic Peninsula now is a taste of unsettling changes, elsewhere, to come.

HAMMER PROJECTS: ANTONY January 22nd-May 13th
Adélie penguins, like other polar species, have always faced daunting challenges. But today, Adélies are confronting conditions for which nothing in their evolutionary history has prepared them. According to Fraser, the colonies around Palmer Station have reached a tipping point: they’ll be gone within his lifetime.
Adélie penguins struggle to save eggs submerged by snowmelt.
I also expressed my strong desire to move towards the feminine in our empathetic relationship with each other and our environment. I believe that such a direction might help us to navigate the problems that we are facing now as a species.
Antony will perform today on at 2:30PM EST.
