Last year we had a dry hot summer everywhere. In California temperatures were higher than ever, exacerbating their drought. In Australia, half a year earlier, it was the same. Summers are hotter, winters warmer. Rains and storms are heavier. Antarctica shrinks. Last year, the polar vortex around Chicago brought an extreamely cold winter with arctic temperatures. The weather is about extreames and unpredictability.
The desert is a metaphor for that. It too is about extreames and deep contrasts. In that wide open landscape, where nature is extremely strong, it is not easy to survive. Almost everything breaks, flora and fauna don't exist or they try and then disappear. The desert is destructive. At the same time it's attractive. It is a place for wanderers, explorers, nomads and panners - to invent.
