Janet Biggs is a photographer, videographer, and performance artist whose work depicts individuals in extreme situations, often in landscapes such as the Arctic, the Horn of Africa, the Taklamakan Desert in China, and sites in Ethiopia, Djibouti, and around the United States. Biggs is engaged with the issues of the day, including climate change and environmental degradation addressed in Warning Shot.

Biggs works with scientists such as aerospace engineers, astrophysicists, Polar researchers, explorers, and neuroscientists. She even visited Mars when she donned a spacesuit for a residency of several weeks with the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah. This facility simulates the Mars Mission for scientists and researchers. The two videos that were in this exhibition exemplify the intensity she seeks in both her art and life.
