Last January Fred Ros was the first artist in the world to visit Antarctica with the goal of making a virtual exhibition (1 Day of 480 hours) on the Internet. Impressions of the Art-expedition were sent by a mobile satellite unit which was part of the experiment. No expert could guarantee Ros a connection with a satellite in this part of the world. But he succeeded making it work. Back home (Netherlands) he nowmade his South pole Exhibition: to be seen at the KunstRAI, Amsterdam 5-10 June 2001 at Kunstrruimte Wagemans. Some of the workswere shown already in The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

With more than 80 kilos of overweight all his equipmentand expedition clothes in his suitcaseIn his luggage he also carried earlier work of his project A hundred feet above the Waddensea and art work he made on the library of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. He setdressed this earlier work in in the polar landscape. He sampled his earlier work framed by ice, water stone and penguin shit Het door Ros zo lang gedroomde licht deed de rest.
