WSIU TV senior producer Jak Tichenor takes a closer look at the museum exhibit "Antarctic Dreams," which showcased the photography and sound work of photographer Gary Kolb, Dean of the SIU Carbondale (SIUC) College of Mass Communication and Media Arts, and sound artist Jay Needham, an associate professor in SIUC's Department of Radio-Television. The exhibit, which was on display at the University Museum
Kolb and Needham discuss the adventures of British explorer Ernest Shackleton, who led several expeditions to Antarctica in the early 1900s, and explorer Robert Falcon Scott who's 1910-1913 expedition to the South Pole ended in tragedy. Kolb explains that photos from the Scott expedition served as the inspiration for he and Needham's trip to Antarctica. He points out the surprisingly vivid colors of the white continent's unique geologic features, such as Deception Island, and its vast array of wildlife, such as penguins, seals, and whales (a series of whalebone photos were part of the exhibit).
