Ars Natura: 100 Girls, 100 Octopii

read
Zak Smith's Klimt-inspired graphic euphoria updates ‘The Kiss’ as a meeting of the species.

If you know anything about the bizarre art of Genki – the Japanese porn/film company that has made “eel porn” a household world in Tokyo (watch the show on VBS.tv if you don’t believe me) – the juxtaposition of naked ladies with tentacles is probably not so shocking in the work of Zak Smith. Smith has become a hot, hot commodity as of late and has landed in numerous important art......read more

Local Materials Only: The 100-Mile House

read
Home-building competition challenges architects to keep it local

The food-based locavore movement is maybe best defined by the "100-Mile Diet," which involves eating only what's available in your region. Now, that concept is being applied to architecture with the "100-Mile House," an approach to homebuilding that involves using only materials available in your immediate environment (duh).  The idea is being promoted by the 100 Mile House......read more

Jonathan Safran Foer on Meat

read
Breathtaking photos of East African wildlife.

In Jonathan Safran Foer's latest book "The Eating of Animals" the lauded novelist dives deep into the complex morality of eating meat. An avowed vegetarian, Foer stops short of preaching the vegan way of life, but presents some pretty damning testimony about factory farms and the lives of animals raised on them. The Atlantic correspondant Jeffrey Goldberg had a discussion with Foer......read more

Chocolate with a Conscience

read
This Valentine's, give the gift of a guilt-free gorge.

And the holiday has become so aggressive that it takes hard work to avoid being gawked at like you’re some romatically-challenged leper. Fear not readers. ......read more

It’s a fairly unassailable assertion that you’ve heard a bazillion times (possibly from a Brazilian?) – food cooked outside tastes better. I know. Duh, right? And there are many who would go further and argue that food cooked over charcoal is far superior to food cooked on a gas grill. I count myself among them. Then there is another smaller circle in the Fuel Preferences of......read more
