July - August 2006
William L. Fox has published numerous books on cognition and landscape. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Science Foundation. His project The Aerial Imagination will be a history of how we view the Earth from above. Although his analysis will include visual culture from as long ago as 8,000 years, and the military applications of aerial views from Leonardo onward, he will be concentrating on contemporary artistic, cartographic, and scientific practices. Fox is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and has also published fifteen collections of poetry, as well as written several exhibition catalogue essays and monographs on photography.
