* “Wabi-sabi is not found in nature at moments of bloom and lushness, but at moments of inception or subsiding. Wabi-sabi is not about gorgeous flowers, majestic trees, or bold landscapes. Wabi-sabi is about the minor and the hidden, the tentative and the ephemeral things so subtle and evanescent they are invisible to the vulgar eyes. . .

Wabi-sabi images force us to contemplate our own mortality, and they evoke an existential loneliness and tender sadness. They also stir mingled bittersweet comfort, since we know all existence shares the same fate.”
Leonard Koren is the forerunner of wabi sabi in the United States.  As wabi sabi is a part of the Japanese culture, it is not written about there; only westerners have written about it.

PAYER-WEYPRECHT-ISLANDS (http://wapedia.mobi/en/Franz_Josef_Land) introduced by kunstGarten 2006: A HOMMAGE
The first recognized exploration of the archipelago was done in 1873 by Austro-Hungarian North Pole Expedition explorers Karl Weyprecht and Julius von Payer, while their ship was locked in ice trying to find a northeast passage. After exploration of its southern islands, the name was bestowed in honor of Austro-Hungarian emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria. (Franz Josef Land in Arctic Ocean N of Novaya Zemlya, Russia Arkhangelsk Oblast, Northwestern Federal District. Franz Josef Land consists of 191 ice-covered islands with a total area of 16,134 km². It has no native inhabitants.The archipelago is volcanic, composed of tertiary and jurassic basalts, and though covered mostly by ice it does have outcroppings covered with moss and lichens. The northeastern part of the archipelago is locked in pack ice all year round, however the ice sometimes retreats past the southern islands in the late summer.

The basalts of the Franz Josef Islands are part of the High Arctic Large Igneous Province. The central cluster of large islands in the midst of the archipelago forms a compact whole, known as Zichy Land, where islands are separated from each other by very narrow sounds that are frozen most of the year.-
