read
Loosely-rendered paintings merge landscape and abstraction

With a few notable exceptions, landscape painting and abstraction operate on separate planes, and ne'er the twain shall meet.

The works on canvas distill the feelings and sensations of the nature scenes -- without accurately depicting them. As he explains in a......read more

Sumptuous nighttime photos of forests and stars

A quick perusal of these Benoit Paillé's dream-like photos of forests and stars leaves the distinct impression that the Canadian photographer was tripping when he shot them.

Shot predominantly with an Olympus om10, his......read more

Because fungal outbreaks can completely wipe out their crops if they're not careful, farmers do two things. One, they spray with fungicide. And two, they test the soil for fungal spores. Neither action is ideal. Fungicide is toxic, and overuse leads to resistance. And testing can take time and be expensive. While farmers are waiting for their results back from the lab, their fields can already be......read more
