Raveonettes "Black/White"

watch
Puppetry, cut outs and computer animation mixed to stunning effect by director Chris Do.

With the video for the Raveonettes' 2009 song "Black/White," Chris Do, founder of Blind, takes the theme of contrast and runs with it. Opposing forces are threaded through the narrative: love/hate, life/death, young/old, daydream/nightmare, ugliness/beauty. The dark, sparse look of the video matches the Danish duo's aesthetic perfectly. ...read more

Rio Earth Summit: Success, More or Less

read
Bob Keefe of the NRDC discusses mixed results

There's a saying in Portuguese, one of the few that I know: Mais ou Menos. It means more or less. Brazilians often use the phrase when you ask them how they’re doing. Mais ou Menos: Good, more or less. Looking back, with the road to Rio+20 now behind us, the expression seems to be a fitting way to sum up the successfulness of the Earth Summit. Mais ou Menos. No, the document that......read more

From the Farmbox

read
Shawn Traylor ramps up his farmbox cooking adventure. On the menu: Mixed seafood grill with ramp pesto spaghetti.

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

Takagi Masakatsu, "Girls"

watch
Stunning multimedia work from Japanese artist

The word "multimedia" gets thrown around a lot when describing art that combines more than one mode of creation. It's also usually a good way to make us not care about the art being described. Takagi Masakatsu is an exception to the rule. The Kyoto-based musician/painter shoots everyday banal scenes then slows then down and smears them with digital colors and scores them with delicate,......read more

NASA to Undertake Massive Pollution Cleanup

read
Polluted soil beneath launch pads could cost $1 billion to remediate

When it comes to its environmental effects on Earth, space exploration is a dirty business. NASA says it could take a century to clean up the chemical messes left behind by launching shuttles and rockets into space. The liftoffs have created plumes of carcinogenic chemicals in the sandy soils beneath Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral in Florida.  NASA said it will spend $96......read more

Reclaimed Sidewalks in NYC

read
Sidewalks reincarnated as traffic medians.

Beneath the foot of NYC's Queensboro Bridge, a $75 million reworking of NYC's Queens Plaza includes what looks to be a creative solution to overcrowded graveyards. In fact, the chunks of concrete are not tombstones but sidewalks that were demolished during the course of construction, now acting as traffic medians. A collaboration between Tobiah Horton and WRT Design, the......read more

Nick Gentry: Floppy Disk Paintings

read
Dead storage media given new lease on life.

Sometimes, like with records or Polaroids, old media is fetishized and revered for having qualities that new tech can't replicate. But usually obsolete media is forgotten and condemned to the trash heap. Floppy disks land squarely in the category of unlucky ones. London-based artist Nick Gentry gives floppy disks a new lease on life, resurrecting the discarded technology to make canvases for......read more
