Weekly links: Surfrider celebrates 150th victory, photography heads undersea, and Russian nature art is nuts.

Jean Shin is doing her part to combat America's garbage problem, one mindmelting art installation at a time. The Brooklyn-based artist's widely divergent body of work shares a few common traits: it's all highly labor-intensive, it's all made from discarded materials (whether wine bottles, prescription pill bottles, cheap umbrellas, or lottery tickets), and it's all awesome. But Shin's......read more
