Landscape Paintings by Nathan Abels

read
High-contrast landscape works combine the natural and the manmade

Denver artist Nathan Abels creates majestically muted landscape works that combine manmade and natural elements. Existing somewhere between the real and the imagined, the paintings depict what Abels calls "visual pauses," or snapshots of some unknown event or narrative.  "Our contemporary environment is quite turbulent, often over-stimulating us to the point of being dulled to the......read more

Filmmaker Jonathan Britnell captures one second a day for the entire year

It is a rare scenario when new year's resolutions last for a whole year. Hell, we're barely a week into 2013 and mine are already in the toilet. That's what makes this Jonathan Britnell-directed video, spotted on Booooooom, so impressive. In 2012, looking to add a dose of creativity to his daily routine, Britnell resolved to shoot one second of footage every single day of the year. Shot by a......read more

Just get there! This Tuesday, vote NO on Prop. 23. A SHFT PSA directed by Jonathan Glatzer.

Our final PSA in the No on Prop. 23 campaign, Doesn't Matter How You Get There, is a poppy light hearted reminder in the old get-out-the-vote spirit. Jonathan Glatzer — who also directed our Men In Yellow spot for this campaign — played with environmentally conscious modes of transportation for Californian's on their way to the polls. The concept came from Jared Ficker, the man......read more

Analog Photos by Jonathan Hyde

read
Melancholic imagery from the Brighton-based photog

We came across the work of UK photographer Jonathan Hyde over at the always-inspiring Boooooom, and hot damn it's some nice stuff. Based in Brighton on England's south coast, Hyde says he is inspired by "endless vistas over shires and highland peninsulas, crisp winter chill and bright white ice, chemical malfunction and torn negatives, and harsh rocks and gentle boughs." These wonderfully organic......read more

Technology is no alternative for love, argues American novelist

[T]he ultimate goal of technology, the telos of techne, is to replace a natural world......read more

Conceptual Landscape Paintings by Jonathan Zawada

read
Large-scale neon landscapes interpreted from digital data.

Fact: The more pot high school seniors smoke, the more music they buy. That's just one of the many offbeat sociological observations made by Australian artist Jonathan Zawada in Over Time, a series of oil paintings that recently wrapped its run at Prism Gallery in LA. A self-described "tech junkie," Zawada collected random bits of data — like the value of land over time in Dubai vs. in......read more

Where's the Outrage?

In the wake of environmental catastrophe, Jonathan Cohn wonders where the public push for clean energy is.

On his new political blog at The New Republic, Jonathan Cohn looks into the policy implications of the Gulf oil spill, arguing that public pressure for clean energy legislation has been fairly muted in the aftermath of a massive environmental disaster. In the post, Cohn presents a persuasive argument that the lack of public action may limit the chances of pushing comprehensive legislation through......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

Behind the Label

The everyday guide to eco food labels

From biodynamic to dolphin-safe, free range to grass fed, there are enough food labels out there to make your head spin. Any product can slap on a label with an environmental claim, but not all labels are created equal. Audobon Magazine cooked up a nice and simple breakdown of what labels have a leg to stand on, and which aren't much more than pasture-raised B.S. Third-party labels are the most......read more

Green Labels Get Lampooned

read
Lunchbreath takes a poke at corporate eco claims.

There aren't many things more ripe for parody than corporate eco claims. Just have a look at a disposable Starbucks cup, where you'll find a statement that it's "Made with 10% post-consumer recycled fibre." Wow, congratulations. Hurray for saving the earth. Graphic designer and cartoonist Tobias "Lunchbreath" dishes up some hilarious parodies of eco claims,......read more
