Windgrove is a 100 acre coastal property in the south-east of Tasmania that borders Roaring Beach and looks out across Storm Bay to the Antarctic 3000 kilometers away. ‘Life on the Edge’, first published in 2003, is a weekly diary of photos and prose about the comings and goings here.
The author of this blog and steward/ caretaker of Windgrove is Peter Adams. American born (Detroit), Harvard graduate (1968), Peace Corps volunteer (Korea), carpenter (Alaska), furniture designer/maker (North Carolina), sculptor and environmental writer (Tasmania).
His art is in six museums internationally and he has taught at schools in England, America, Korea and Australia.
After purchasing Windgrove in 1991, Peter has spent the ensuing years transforming the landscape through the planting of 8,000 trees and the creation of several large scale Earth Art features. In the process he, himself, has been transformed by the land.
This blog is the story of that reciprocal transformation.
