A project located in the spectacular Western Desert

John O’Carroll is an artist who is also a polymath. His wide knowledge of archaeology, geology, palaeontology and ancient history has been informed by his various travels.

A project located in the spectacular Western Desert with its wide remit of study encompassing geology, palaeontology, prehistory, Egyptology, anthropology, and even the hunt for meteors, gave me a huge, exciting playground for my imagination, developing and changing my sense of time and my spatial and visual awareness.
