read
Elaborate mixed media works created from rolls of colored paper

For each piece, the Connecticut-based artist rolls up colored paper into hundreds of tubes, then adheres them to painted canvases. The results are stunning, polychromatic pieces of art that resemble undersea reefs. In fact, the natural environment inspires all of Gensler's work. As......read more

SoCal artist documents the collision of the natural and industrial worlds

As regular SHFT readers know by now, we sort of have a thing for art and photography that explores the area where the natural and the manmade intersect. And Los Angeles-based creative Brooks Salzwedel, whose work we discovered on Faith is Torment, navigates that zone as beautifully and interestingly as anyone. Salzwedel's mixed media works are made using hand drawn graphite on Duralar, which is......read more

Mind the Curb

read
British green marketing company takes earth art into the commercial realm.

For Curb, the British marketing agency that makes ads out of natural earth elements, the medium is most definitely the message. And with every brand and their mother dying to be thought of as environmental advocates, it also seems like pretty good business strategy. The company, a perennial SHFT fave, is positioned as the "world's first natural media company". The Curb portfolio......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

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?

Then there is another smaller circle in the Fuel Preferences of......read more
