A Year Without a Winter brings together science fiction, history, visual art, and exploration. Inspired by the literary dare that would give birth to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein amidst the aftermath of a massive volcanic eruption, and today, by the utopian architecture of Paolo Soleri and the Arizona desert, as well as expeditions to Antarctica and Indonesia, this collection reframes the relationship among climate, crisis, and creation.
