Also, the latest on the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, and a look at how the norms of masculinity are negatively impacting men and boys. Hari Sreenivasan anchors from New York.

There’s two times more carbon in the earth’s soil than in all of its vegetation and the atmosphere — combined. Biogeochemist Asmeret Asefaw Berhe dives into the science of soil and shares how we could use its awesome carbon-trapping power to offset climate change. “[Soil] represents the difference between life and lifelessness in the earth system, and it can also help us combat climate change — if we can only stop treating it like dirt,” she says.

Plants are amazing machines — for millions of years, they’ve taken carbon dioxide out of the air and stored it underground, keeping a crucial check on the global climate. Plant geneticist Joanne Chory is working to amplify this special ability: with her colleagues at the Salk Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology Laboratory, she’s creating plants that can store more carbon, deeper underground, for hundreds of years. Learn more about how these supercharged plants could help slow climate change. (This ambitious plan is a part of the Audacious Project, TED’s initiative to inspire and fund global change.)

Cell Division Time lapse

francischeefilms   Published on Mar 13, 2017

Time_lapse of cell division from second cleavage. The animal pole is clearly visible in the upper half of the image. A brief note about the image capture techniques: Hi I can say that it was done with a custom designed microscope based on the “infinity optical design” It is not available by any manufacturer. I built it. I used LEDs and relevant optics to light the egg. They too were custom designed by me. The whole microscope sits on anti-vibration table. I have to say that it doesn’t matter too much what microscope people use to perform this. There are countless other variables involved in performing this tricky shot, such as for example: the ambient temperature during shooting; the time at which the eggs were collected; the handling skills of the operator; the type of water used; lenses; quality of camera etc etc. Hope this helps.

Subscribe to watch full natural history documentaries! A new documentary is uploaded every week. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thesecretsof… Twitter: https://twitter.com/NatureUniversum In Bohemia, at the very heart of Europe, south of the Golden City of Prague and guarded by medieval castles, lies a hidden mosaic of lakes and gently flowing rivers, of misty forests and mysterious peat bogs.This important wetland, shaped both by nature and centuries of influence by man, is a magnet for huge flocks of birds and home to an amazing diversity of plant and animal life. In spring there is an explosion of life as the trees are weighed down with nests of cormorants, egrets, herons and storks. With the arrival of winter the landscape becomes silent and desolate. Otters are hunting fish under the ice of frozen lakes while White-tailed Eagles soar over gaps in the ice, targeting fish and birds. Since his early childhood wildlife cinematographer Jiri Petr has spent much of his time in this wildlife paradise. Together with him, we will explore this remarkable habitat and observe the changing faces of nature during the course of one year that inspired many artists and writers alike.

Children and Animals Commune Within Neglected Landscapes in New Paintings by Kevin Peterson

February 28, 2019   Kate Sierzputowski

For several years artist Kevin Peterson (previously) has created paintings that occupy the same fictionalized world. His imagined environments are occupied by children and animals— individuals band together as they navigate depleted urban environments. The works pair the innocence of its subjects against a broken and crumbling world, addressing the various journeys we each take through life.

Recently, Peterson has begun to paint just the animals in these scenes, rather than pairing them exclusively with children. “In my head, it’s the same world,” the Houston-based painter tells Colossal, “the animals and kids just haven’t met up yet. Maybe they’re searching for each other.” His solo exhibition Wild opens at Thinkspace Projects in Culver City, California on March 2, 2019 and continues through March 23, 2019. You can see more of his paintings on his website and Instagram. (via booooooom)

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was “the best on the planet.” It wasn’t until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 14, to begin a life in hiding, as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope — and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.

The Pan-American Highway – From Peru to Tierra del Fuego

Free High-Quality Documentaries

Published on Jul 10, 2018

It measures roughly 35,000 kilometres. From Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. It runs across two continents and through more than a dozen countries; sometimes, as a gravel track, but also as an eight-lane motorway. It meanders through vast landscapes, as well as the confines of major cities. For many, it is the absolutely perfect route: The Pan-American Highway. It leads through forests and deserts, through jungles and across high mountain passes. To the right and left of the Pan-Americana, drug wars and civil wars are contended, Hollywood films produced and computer programmes developed. And just a few thousand kilometres further south, Red Indians still hunt with bows and arrows. For the very first time, a Norddeutscher Rundfunk TV-team travelled the entire route – in search of history and stories.

Chart-Like Composite Photographs by Dan Marker-Moore Show the Progression of the 2019 Solar Eclipse

August 12, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Los Angeles-based photographer Dan Marker-Moore (previously) flew south to document the solar eclipse that occurred in Chile on July 2, 2019. While many professional photographers also documented the event, most images capture the singular moment in one image. Marker-Moore decided to break out the progression in orderly chart-like designs. He shares with Colossal that he experimented with over one hundred different format variants before deciding on the final five. Each image contains between 26 and 425 photos of the sun. Read more about Marker-Moore’s trip and the equipment he used here, and find prints of his eclipse series in his online store. The photographer also shares new work on Instagram.

“For all that’s ever been said about climate change, we haven’t heard nearly enough about the psychological impacts of living in a warming world,” says science writer Britt Wray. In this quick talk, she explores how climate change is threatening our well-being — mental, social and spiritual — and offers a starting point for what we can do about it.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

A journey into the world of our great-grandchildren | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on Jun 1, 2019

What will the world look like in 2060? What role will climate change or the growing world population play? [Online until: July 7, 2019, Part 2 online: June 8, 2019] How does the drive for prosperity fit together with finite resources? John Webster writes a letter to his unborn great-granddaughter in film. “What will the world look like when my great-granddaughter is born?” Filmmaker John Webster has thought about this. He has named her Dorit, and she’ll probably live in the 2060s. He imagines her wearing little yellow rubber boots as she wanders along a shoreline that has by then completely changed out of all recognition. The film is a plea for a more responsible approach to nature for future generations. What kind of world will Dorit experience? What effect will climate change have had? John Webster takes the viewer on a both emotional and physical journey, from Finland through Russia to the Siberian coal mines, then on to the Marshall Islands in the Pacific and through the USA to New York. The world doesn’t actually offer Dorit much hope. By 2050, more than 2.5 billion more people will join the 6.6 billion people alive today: that will mean more than nine billion people are feeding off the land and releasing even more exhaust gases into the atmosphere. A growing percentage of humanity is pursuing prosperity without regard to natural limits. Every year we produce many billions of tons of CO2 and face a rapid succession of storms, droughts and floods,. Climate researchers warn that mankind must drastically reduce its CO2 emissions by 2050, otherwise the planet will no longer be able to support its inhabitants and will gradually shut down everything we base our lives on. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Earth’s Rotation Visualized in a Timelapse of the Milky Way Galaxy by Aryeh Nirenberg

August 20, 2019  Kate Sierzputowski

Although the Earth rotates below the sky, aerial time-lapse videos often have the perspective of a celestial scene rushing above the ground. In this brief video by Aryeh Nirenberg, the Milky Way becomes completely stationary, highlighting specifically the Earth’s rotation. Nirenberg recorded the time-lapse with a Sony a7SII with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 lens while using an equatorial tracking mount over a period of three hours. You can see more of his starscapes on Instagram and Youtube. (via Kottke)

Planetary Panoramas – 360 Degree Night-Sky Time-Lapse by Vincent Brady, Music by Brandon McCoy

Vincent Brady   Published on Jun 17, 2014

Watch remastered version in 4k! https://youtu.be/sUsGBcWeiVQ A multiple camera, 360 degree, night-sky time-lapse (One of the first of its kind!) by photographer Vincent Brady and musician Brandon McCoy. Follow my Photography! https://www.facebook.com/VincentBradyhttps://google.com/+VincentBradyPhoto http://www.vincentbrady.com/ Get Brandon’s Music by Donation/Free Download! http://brandonmccoy1.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/BrandonMcCoyhttps://www.youtube.com/BrandonMcCoyM… About Planetary Panoramas – While experimenting with different photography tricks and techniques back in 2012, I was shooting 360 degree panoramas in the daytime and long exposures of the stars streaking in the sky at night. It suddenly became clear that the potential to combine the two techniques could be a trip! Since the Earth is rotating at a steady 1,040 mph I created a custom rig of 4 cameras with fisheye lenses to capture the entire night-sky in motion. Thus the images show the stars rotating around the north star, rising in the east, setting in the west, as well as the effect of the southern pole. The 4 lenses are wide enough to capture the entire night sky and a 360 degree panorama of the scene on Earth. Each camera is doing nonstop long exposures, typically about 1 minute consecutively for the life of the camera battery. Usually about 3 hours. I then made a script to stitch all the thousands of these panoramas into this time-lapse. I created my rig in January of 2013 while in my final semester at Lansing Community College before receiving an associates degree in photography. Given it was winter in Michigan, I didn’t get to chase the notorious clear moonless night sky as much as I had hoped as the region has lots of cloud cover that time of year. Though I was ready on the rare night to go experiment. After graduating in May I had built up quite the urge to hit the road. My rig has taken me to firefly parties in Missouri, dark eerie nights at Devils Tower, through Logan Pass at Glacier National Park, up the mountains of British Columbia, and around the amazing arches and sandstone monuments in the Great American Southwest. Scenes as they appear 0:12 – Delicate Arch, Utah 0:27 – Double Arch, Utah (outside) 0:41 – Double Arch, Utah (inside) 0:57 – Landscape Arch, Utah 1:14 – Turret Arch, Utah 1:28 – Balanced Rock, Utah 1:42 – Logan Pass, Glacier National Park, MT 1:55 – Lake of the Ozarks, MO 2:08 – Kootenay Lake, British Columbia 2:19 – Valhalla, British Columbia 2:30 – Kootenay Lake, British Columbia 2:41 – Badlands, South Dakota 2:51 – Windows/Turret Arch – Utah (Lunar Eclipse) 3:00 – Garden of Eden – Utah 3:10 – Monument Valley – Utah 3:26 – Totem Poles, Monument Valley – Utah 3:39 – Sleepy Hollow, Michigan These are the images I created on the cold, dark, sleepless nights under awe-spiring skies. The music is composed and recorded by my very good friend, the acoustic fingerpicking guitar prodigy Brandon McCoy! Brandon who is also from the greater Lansing area in Mid-Michigan is quite the acoustic instrumentalist. The song chosen for this time-lapse is called ‘One Letter From Lady.’ I moved to Michigan when I was 15 and Brandon was the first friend I made. He was the cool kid playing Pink Floyd licks on a $2 guitar at the time. Soon, after he had spent his cold, dark, sleepless nights perfecting his craft, he started coming up with his very own instrumentals. Some of which are upbeat by mixing picking, slapping, and drumming on the guitar while other compositions of his are calm and soothing and can put you in a meditative trance if you just close your eyes. It has been a great experience watching each other grow as artist for over the past 10 years, and you better believe we will be collaborating on projects like this in the very near future. Speaking for the both of us, we are grateful that you checked this out this project. If you enjoyed it, don’t be selfish… Share it with your friends!

Abstracted Dual Landscapes Created Using Cleverly Placed Mirrors &

August 23, 2018  Laura Staugaitis

Photographer Sebastian Magnani carefully positions round mirrors in outdoor settings to capture two landscapes at once: the ground below and the sky above. In the ongoing series Reflections, some compositions reflect connected imagery, like blossom-covered grass and a flowering tree. Others juxtapose man-made surfaces like asphalt with organic branches. By removing the usual context of landscape images, Magnani allows the viewer to focus on the textural qualities of the environment, and some images even veer into illusions, as with the cloudy night sky that appears like a full moon.  You can see more from the Swiss photographer, including portraits, on Instagram and Facebook. Magnani has also recently started offering prints of the Reflections series on Society6. (via Bored Panda)

Repurposing the World’s Plastic Waste: An Interview With Assemblage Sculptor Thomas Deininger

August 28, 2019  Kate Sierzputowski

Every year more than eight million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans. This anxiety, coupled with fears of a dramatic decline in insect populations and a global climate crisis, fuel the assemblage-based works of Thomas Deininger (previously). In a new short film by gnarly bay, clips of Deininger in his studio are supercut with footage showing the many ways that plastic has laid damage to our world’s sea creatures and environment. It is these bits of mindlessly discarded plastic that the Bristol, Rhode Island-based artist uses to create his sculptural optical illusions—which are often of the exact same animals and insects that the plastic threatens. You can see more of Deininger’s three-dimensional works built from found objects on Instagram.

Fleeing climate change – the real environmental disaster | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on May 1, 2019

How many millions of people will be forced to leave their homes by 2050? This documentary looks at the so-called hotspots of climate change in the Sahel zone, Indonesia and the Russian Tundra. Lake Chad in the Sahel zone has already shrunk by 90 percent since the 1960s due to the increasing heat. About 40 million people will be forced to migrate to places where there is enough rainfall. Migration has always existed as a strategy to adapt to a changing environment. But the number of those forced to migrate solely because of climate change has increased dramatically since the 1990s. It is a double injustice: after becoming rich at the expense of the rest of the world, the industrialized countries are now polluting the atmosphere with their emissions and bringing a second misfortune to the inhabitants of the poorer regions. One of them is Mohammed Ibrahim: as Lake Chad got hotter and drier, he decided to go where the temperatures were less extreme and there was still a little water, trekking with his wife, children and 70 camels from Niger to Chad and then further south. The journey lasted several years and many members of his herd died of thirst. Now he and his family are living in a refugee camp: they only have seven camels left. Mohammed is one of many who have left their homelands in the Sahel – not because of conflict and crises, but because of the high temperatures. He’s a real climate refugee. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines. Watch high-class documentaries from German broadcasters and international production companies.

Wildfires are burning around the world. The most alarming is in the Amazon rainforest.

Record heat, drought, and deforestation are contributing to wildfire risk.

By Umair Irfan Updated Aug 23, 2019, 10:11am EDT

Residents of Sao Paulo, Brazil recently reported black rain which experts say is fire residue from wildfires in the Amazon, on August 19, 2019. Andre Lucas/Getty Images

An alarming cluster of wildfires are now burning in the Amazon rainforest and are threatening to disrupt international negotiations. French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday laid the blame for the Amazon fires on Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, calling the blazes an “international crisis” and promising to bring it up at the G7 summit this weekend.

The Amazon rainforest is the world’s largest tropical forest. It’s an area with torrential rain that almost never burns on its own, yet the blazes have burned for more than two weeks, growing so intense that they sent smoke all the way to São Paulo, Brazil’s largest city.

The state of Amazonas has declared an emergency. The #PrayforAmazonia tag has surged on social media as users blamed darkened skies above São Paulo on the fires, though some meteorologists said the low clouds were a normal weather phenomenon.

But the Amazon is not the only region that’s burning. More than 21,000 square miles of forest have gone up in flames in Siberia this month, putting Russia on track for its worst year on record for wildfires. The smoke from these blazes shrouded large parts of the country, including major cities like Novosibirsk, and has crossed the Pacific Ocean into the United States.

On Monday, a wildfire in the Canary Islands forced more than 8,000 people to flee. Over the weekend, new fires ignited in Alaska, extending what’s already been an unusually long fire season for the state. Last week, Denmark dispatched firefighters to Greenland combat a wildfire approaching inhabited areas. If not extinguished, officials are worried the blaze would burn through the winter, further driving up the already massive ice melt Greenland has experienced this year amid record heat.

California, which suffered its most destructive wildfire season on record in 2018, is having a much calmer year by comparison, although the potential for a major fire remains.

Many of these wildfires stem from unprecedented warmth and dryness across many parts of the world this year. And in the case of the Amazon, they are an unmistakable sign of how humans are radically reshaping the planet.

Conditions were ripe for major fires this year

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported last week that this past July was the hottest July on record. The next five hottest Julys were all in the past five years.

This is not just for the northern hemisphere, where it’s summer right now, but for the whole world. The average global temperature last month was 1.71 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th century average.

It may not seem like much, but remember that this is an average, which can obscure the extremes. And there were plenty of extremes last month.

The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium set temperature records. Paris recorded its highest temperature ever, 108.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Parts of Poland, the Czech Republic, and Spain also experienced unprecedented high temperatures. Huge swaths of the United States also baked in a heat wave last month, with minimum temperatures approaching or breaking records.

So it’s not too surprising that many of the areas burning right now experienced extreme heat last month: Siberia, Alaska, the Canary Islands.

Alaska and the Canary Islands have also dealt with severe drought this year. In May, Alaska reported “extreme” drought conditions, the first time such a rating was recorded for the state, according to the US Drought Monitor.

These conditions have long been known to exacerbate wildfires. High heat and low moisture means vegetation dries out. But people play a critical role too.

Humans make wildfires worse. In the Amazon, humans are the underlying cause.

In many ecosystems, wildfires are a natural and essential phenomenon. They clear out decaying brush, restore nutrients to soil, and even help plants germinate. But in recent years, humans have made the destruction from wildfires worse at every step. Suppression of natural fires has allowed dry vegetation to accumulate. Human activity is changing the climate, which is forcing some forests to heat up and dry out. People are building ever closer to areas ready to ignite. And people end up igniting the majority of wildfires, whether through downed power lines, errant sparks, or arson.

But the Amazon rainforest, which remains drenched for much of the year, does not burn naturally. Instead, the fires are ignited by people. Farmers use slash-and-burn tactics to clear land for farming and pasture, though it’s illegal in Brazil this time of year due to fire risk.

Illegal logging operations in Brazil have also been known to start fires as a tactic to drive indigenous people off their land and to cover their tracks. The Amazon rainforest has experienced a record number of fires this year, with more than 74,000 reported so far. It’s an 84 percent increase over the number of wildfires at the same time last year.

“There is nothing abnormal about the climate this year or the rainfall in the Amazon region, which is just a little below average,” Alberto Setzer, a researcher at Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE), told Reuters. “The dry season creates the favorable conditions for the use and spread of fire, but starting a fire is the work of humans, either deliberately or by accident.”

The Amazon rainforest fires are becoming an international political concern

The source of the current wildfires in Brazil is not yet known, and the government in Brazil is not all that inclined to find out. INPE’s director, Ricardo Galvão, was ousted from his job earlier this month after his agency reported an 88 percent increase in the deforestation rate in the Amazon.

Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, called the deforestation data “lies.” On Wednesday, he accused non-governmental organizations of starting fires after the government withdrew funding for these groups. He provided no evidence for this claim.

When pressed further about the fires on Thursday, Bolsonaro said the government didn’t have the resources to respond. And he again reiterated his claim that NGOs started the fires, according to the BBC:

Asked on Thursday who was responsible for starting the fires, he responded: “The Indians, do you want me to blame the Indians? Do you want me to blame the Martians?… Everyone is a suspect, but the biggest suspects are NGOs.”

Asked if there was any proof of this, he replied: “Did I accuse NGOs directly? I just said I suspect them.”

The French government meanwhile is laying the blame on the Brazilian government. France’s Macron accused Bolsonaro of failing to uphold earlier commitments to preserve the rainforest. “The president can only conclude President Bolsonaro lied to him at the Osaka summit,” a French official told Politico, referring to the June G20 meeting.

This deforestation stands to have major regional consequences. Without trees in place to anchor the soil and retain moisture, the underlying vegetation can dry out, making it easier to burn. Trees also evaporate a huge volume of water and emit chemicals that make it condense, helping the rainforest generate its own rainfall.

Right now, the Amazon has been deforested by 15 percent or more from its primeval state and scientists are worried that if it reaches 25 percent, there won’t be enough trees cycling water through the forest. The region will cross a tipping point and eventually degrade into savanna.

This has huge consequences for the rest of the world as well. The Amazon rainforest produces huge amounts of oxygen. Its vegetation holds on to billions of metric tons of carbon that could oxidize into heat-trapping gases.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change earlier this month reported that conserving areas like the Amazon rainforest will be integral to mitigating climate change. But with the current pace of wildfires and deforestation, the world is rapidly galloping in the wrong direction.

? Thisiscolossal: Geometric Portraits by Silvia Idili Overlay Clusters of Origami-Like Objects on Subjects’ Eyes, Noses, and Mouths

August 15, 2019  Kate Sierzputowski

Milan-based painter Silvia Idili paints portraits of men and women that are partially obscured by folded

geometric objects, incomplete masks that draw the audience deeper into the subjects’ gaze. Idili explains to JULIET that these origami-like additions featured in The Visionaries “are the symbol of infrastructures created by the mind to hide and mask the true nature of one’s being, which is at the same time an expression of a spiritual tension in relation to the anxiety of the contemporary.”

The portraits invite the audience to take a moment to reflect on their own inner gaze as they make eye contact with the guarded paintings. You can view more of Idili’s portraits and surrealist animal paintings on her website and Instagram. (via INAG)

Elephants at the Water Lily Pond and their Environment 1:  Artwork by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts 

I produced Elephants at the Water Lily Pond in 1999, because I heard about deforestation.  I have been very concerned about humans invading the animals habitats by cutting down the forests for housing and farm land.  Some humans do not believe in global warming that is caused from mismanaging the environment so they go on making their wealth from destroying the land for mining and the forest for the wood products.  Some trees are cut down to produce throw away chopsticks and other wasteful products.

Hubble Catches 2 Galaxies at Play

The pair of strange, luminescent creatures at play in this image are actually galaxies — realms of millions upon millions of stars. This galactic duo is known as UGC 2369. The galaxies are interacting, meaning that their mutual gravitational attraction is pulling them closer and closer together and distorting their shapes in the process. A tenuous bridge of gas, dust, and stars can be seen connecting the two galaxies,, during which they pulled material out into space across the diminishing divide between them.  Interaction with others is a common event in the history of most galaxies. For larger galaxies like the Milky Way, the majority of these interactions involve significantly smaller so-called dwarf galaxies. But every few aeons, a more momentous event can occur. For our home galaxy, the next big event will take place in about four billion years, when it will collide with its bigger neighbour, the Andromeda Galaxy. Over time, the two galaxies will likely merge into one — already nicknamed Milkomeda.

Hubble Snaps a Galactic Potpourri of Particles

Every now and then, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope glimpses a common object — say, a spiral galaxy — in an interesting or unusual way. A sharply angled perspective, such as the one shown in this Picture of the Week, can make it seem as if we, the viewers, are craning our necks to see over a barrier into the galaxy’s bright centre.  In the case of NGC 3169, this barrier is the thick dust embedded within the galaxy’s spiral arms. Cosmic dust comprises a potpourri of particles, including water ice, hydrocarbons, silicates, and other solid material. It has many origins and sources, from the leftovers of star and planet formation to molecules modified over millions of years by interactions with starlight.  NGC 3169 is located about 70 million light-years away in the constellation of Sextans (The Sextant). It is part of the Leo I Group of galaxies, which, like the Local Group that houses our home galaxy, the Milky Way, is part of a larger galactic congregation known as the Virgo Supercluster.

Hubble Peers at Galactic Cherry Blossoms

The galaxy NGC 1156 resembles a delicate cherry blossom tree flowering in springtime in this Hubble Picture of the Week. The many bright “blooms” within the galaxy are in fact stellar nurseries — regions where new stars are springing to life. Energetic light emitted by newborn stars in these regions streams outwards and encounters nearby pockets of hydrogen gas, causing it to glow with a characteristic pink hue. NGC 1156 is located in the constellation of Aries (The Ram). It is classified as a dwarf irregular galaxy, meaning that it lacks a clear spiral or rounded shape, as other galaxies have, and is on the smaller side, albeit with a relatively large central region that is more densely packed with stars.  Some pockets of gas within NGC 1156 rotate in the opposite direction to the rest of the galaxy, suggesting that there has been a close encounter with another galaxy in NGC 1156’s past. The gravity of this other galaxy — and the turbulent chaos of such an interaction — could have scrambled the likely more orderly rotation of material within NGC 1156, producing the odd behaviour we see today.

Growing VEGGIEs in Space

Leafy greens are growing in space! The Columbus laboratory module’s VEGGIE botany research facility is the home to the International Space Station‘s gardening activities. The VEG-04 botany study is exploring the viability of growing fresh food in space to support astronauts on long-term missions. The salad-type plants are harvested after 28 days of growth, with some samples stowed for analysis and the rest taste-tested by the crew aboard the station.

Neighboring Communities Playfully Connect Atop Neon Pink Teetertotters Slotted Through the U.S.-Mexico Border Wall

July 30, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello have long worked in activating structures in projects that blur the line between art and architecture. The Oakland-based duo, who self-describe as pursuing “applied architectural research”, also have a longstanding interest in the United States-Mexico border wall. In 2009 Rael wrote Borderwall as Architecture, which features a conceptual drawing of a teetertotter. The concept relocates the classic playground equipment to the border wall as its fulcrum. Ten years later, this cover art came to life in the neighboring communities of Sunland Park, New Mexico and Colonia Anapra, Mexico.

Constructed by Taller Herrería in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, neon pink teetertotters slot through the wall’s narrow gaps, allowing citizens on both sides to playfully engage with their cross-border counterparts. The fundamental design of the teetertotter, while delightful and chuckle-inducing, also functions by each user literally feeling the weight of humanity of the person on the other side. In an Instagram post announcing the project Rael shared, “children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side.”

Rael and San Fratello worked in collaboration with Omar Rios to execute “Teetertotter Walls.” Rael is a Professor of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley and San Fratello is an Assistant Professor at San José State University. Dive into an archive of nearly twenty years of the duo’s socially engaged work on their website, and follow along with their latest projects on Instagram.

Infinite Forms Unfurl in New Rotating Sculptures by John Edmark

August 6, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

We continue to be transfixed by John Edmark’s (previously) infinite 3-D printed designs. The self-described artist, designer, and inventor uses visual tricks to create cascading effects on rotating textured white sculptural surfaces. His most recent video, “Blooms Assortment”, features a noodle-like form, shifting cubes, and a hollow gridded shape that resembles a geyser or mushroom cloud. Edmark has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in computer science and has lectured at Stanford’s design program for over fifteen years.  See more of Edmark’s creations on Vimeo and if you’d like to call one of his pieces your own, visit his online store.

In Ohio, do Republican voters care about Trump’s remarks on race?

PBS NewsHour   Published on Aug 2, 2019

President Trump prompted more controversy this week by insulting a lawmaker of color, Rep. Elijah Cummings, and his Maryland district. Trump called Baltimore “filthy” and “infested,” terms he has used before to refer to urban areas with majority black populations. Ahead of Trump’s rally in southwestern Ohio, Yamiche Alcindor asked voters there what they think of the president’s rhetoric on race.

A Photo that Says it All ~ Individualism v. Conformity

  Art museums are very revealing. They demonstrate conformity at its finest. 

What makes art valuable? Does it have to do with the skill of the artist, the level of intrigue depicted, or maybe a fascinating perspective? 

Perhaps, but more often than not, the value of art is defined merely by what everyone else thinks is valuable. 

I’ve seen great art. I can tell you precisely how I define great artistry. But I won’t, because that’s how I define it, and that shouldn’t matter to you. Its purely subjective.

Yet walk into an art museum and what do you find? The art determined to be the most valuable is highlighted, some even have their own entire room.

I’ll grant that I’m not the most sophisticated guy by society’s standards, but I’ve yet to enter a museum where I didn’t’ find at least one piece of art that left me wondering “How did this even get in here? This is terrible”

And this is why I love this photo so much. You have a couple of kids in an art gallery not burdened by any social pressures. They are surrounded by art that is valued enough to be placed on display.

And yet, what are thinking?

“Forget what everyone else thinks. I’ll tell you what’s interesting. Its what is inside this wall!”

21 Most Beautiful birds around the world to shock you with their beauty

By Jagriti Goswami  July 6, 2018

The most beautiful bird in the world is… Does anyone know? Or who could possibly answer this question? I guess it is nobody, because, a majority of birds in this world are just so mesmerizing. However, some species certainly have attractive features that can leave the rest behind.

Here’s a list of the world’s 21 most beautiful birds.

1. The Golden Pheasant Bird

Credit: wikia.nocookie.net

These blazing birds are inhabitants of western China. Their neck side encircles an orange shade which actually provides a purpose: when it is time to find a partner, then a male will spread his cape like a fan to show off or flaunt his beautiful colors.

2. The Quetzal Bird

Credit: blogspot.com

Forests of Central America is home to the Quetzal species. An odd variety of feathers is not the only thing they possess but they do have weird hair and hairs and also they have a healthy desire for food; in short foodie. From lizards, insects, small creatures, and even fruits, they are just ready to eat everything.

3. Rainbow Lorikeet Bird

This intensely hued parrot looks like an artist has shown his brushing skills. Rainbow Lorikeets are often seen along the eastern coast of Australia and also found in the Austrian and American region. They prefer hanging in rainforests, woodland areas, and coastal bush. By drinking fermented nectar, they can also become drunk ones.

4. The Kingfisher Bird

As their name indicates, Kingfishers are skillful fishers. Kingfishers can eat a wide variety of foods besides fish, the credit goes to their large, strong bills. Other than fishes they prey on frogs, insects, crabs, rats, lizards, and even other birds. When they hunt, they usually sit on a high point and wait to see the prey. Once the victim is spotted, a Kingfisher will bring it back to its peak and kill it.

5. Keel-Billed Toucans Bird

These birds are indigenous to Belize. They are known for their colorful bills, which come in a wide range of bright colors. Their glittering body is not the only quality they have: they are known for their fearless nature because they wait quietly for the most severe storms.

6. Bohemian Waxwing

Credit: cloudfront.net

Bohemian Waxwing can be recognized by a specific tuft (a bunch of feathers, grass, or hair etc.) which can be seen at the top of his head. Nevertheless, this bird at first glance may not strike you but a close inspection shows a wonderful mix of gray, rose, yellow and black colors that blend beautifully. The body of Bohemian Waxwing is usually found in gray color, but it has rose-colored feathers in its face whereas its tail has a bright yellow tip.

7. Painted Bunting Bird

Gender is the deciding factor in this. The Painted Bunting comes with different colorful wings. The female claims to have different colors of olive green throughout the body, while the male is fascinated by a very different color pattern in which the red on the chest, blue on the head, green on the upper wings, and yellow on the shoulders. Once you catch the glimpse of this short flight rainbow, you will find it difficult to look elsewhere.

8. Green Wing Macaw Parro Bird

11. Bali Bird of Paradise

13. African Crowned Crane Bird

17. Scarlet Tanager Bird

The male Scarlet Tanager can be easily seen because of its bright red bodies, black wings, and tails, while the female is separated from the presence of yellow and olive color. Though it is small enough, this lovely bird is definitely quite visible, and it can be seen especially in the wild during the spring.

18. Gouldian Finch Bird

Gouldian Finch allures with a random but profoundly impressive array of colors. You can expect different colors of blue, purple or light pink color on the bird’s chest, while its stomach and back are respectively in yellow and green colors. Other colors may include red, turquoise, black and olive, each found in different parts of Gouldian Finch’s body.

If you are in their home then you can never miss an opportunity to find North Cardinal. Their hot red wings and wacky, pointed crests will catch eyes of anyone. They also keep their red plumage (feathers covering a bird) in the winter. In the summer, they are whistle fans in the morning.

21. Baltimore Oreole Bird

Credit: audubon.org

Baltimore Oreole is a beautiful colorful bird in which there are bright hues of orange or yellow feathers on the basis of gender. The male species is an orange one, while the female show off a light yellow shade. However, both of them show the same black bars on their wings for the opposite wings, and they are equally extravagant to see both.

Melancholy Creatures Explore Imagined Worlds in Wistful Murals by Hayley Welsh

July 29, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Hayley Welsh’s playful murals pair imaginative creatures with universal messages of uplift and encouragement. Often featuring furry, plump critters that seem to be hybrids of dogs, rabbits, and teddy bears, Welsh’s subjects peer through periscopes atop mechanical fish or aboard paper boats, tug clouds from penny farthing bicycles, and sprout trees as antlers. Occasionally, Basquiat-esque crown motifs appear as well.

In a statement on her website, Welsh’s “ominously soft” work “explores inner voices of self doubt and fear, weaving a poignant narrative into every piece?—a message for each person to reflect on in the moment.” The British-born artist lives and works between Perth, Australia and Blackburn, U.K. Explore more of her outdoor and gallery-based artwork on her website and Instagram.

Aurora australis: Where to view the southern lights and how to photograph them

If you’ve spent any time at all on a social media, chances are you’ve stumbled across some serious #TravelInspo in the form of swaths of ethereal-looking green and pink lights in the night sky.

While the northern hemisphere — we’re looking at you, Iceland, Norway and friends — may have a monopoly on the northern lights, there is no need to travel all that way if seeing the aurora phenomena is on your bucket list.

We have the southern lights, otherwise known as aurora australis, right here in our own backyard.

For the weather uninitiated, ABC Weather reporter Kate Doyle said the process could be compared to that used in neon lighting.

“The sun excites atoms of gas in the same way electricity is used to excite the atoms of gas in a neon tube,” she said.

“When the excited atoms come back down to earth, as it were, they release their energy in the form of mesmerising light.

“You could say the aurora occurs when the sun gets excited and busts out the party lights.”

Experiment, adjust and enjoy

We asked our audience to share some of the places they have captured aurora australis.

And while the lights are most visible and occur more regularly the further south you go, sightings are not limited to Tasmania.

To photograph aurora australis there are a few things you will need:

  • A clear night — the Bureau of Meteorology has a space weather page providing aurora predictions
  • Set up in a position looking south and away from city lights to avoid light pollution and flare
  • A tripod, camera, and wide-angle lens (ideally f2.8 or faster)

To increase your chances of capturing the aurora australis in all its glory:

  • Use a remote trigger with mirror lock to reduce camera shake — if you do not have a remote try using a timer on your camera
  • Shoot in raw format for better quality photos
  • Turn your manual focus to infinity — test this on a clear, non-aurora night to avoid disappointment
  • Set your ISO from 1,600 to 3,200 or greater if your camera has the capability
  • Set your exposure from 10 to 30 seconds — longer exposures will start to show stars as trails rather than dots

Keep in mind all of these settings will depend on the brightness of the aurora, so experiment, adjust, and enjoy the magic.

Bruny Island, Tasmania

Tasmanian photographer, Luke Tscharke, has been taking regular snaps of the state’s solar activity from Bruny Island, less than an hour’s drive south of Hobart.

“The clearest air in the world also provides for some of the clearest skies, and when the clouds stay away it provides an unobstructed view into the cosmos,” he said.

“There is little that can compare to nights such as these.”

Cradle Mountain, Tasmania

In the heart of Tasmania’s wilderness and far from any light pollution, Cradle Mountain made an incredible backdrop when Jai Moyle captured an aurora.

“Never will I see a night like this again,” he said.

Breamlea, Victoria

Surrounding light pollution, and its more northerly location, can make it harder to see the aurora australis in areas like Breamlea in Victoria, but if there is enough cosmic activity and the aurora is big enough, you might just be in luck.

Augusta, Western Australia

Photo: The lights of aurora australis glow over the water at Augusta, WA. (ABC Open contributor: Michelle Peak)

Michelle Peak spotted aurora australis from Augusta in the far south-west of Western Australia in 2015.

“The first time I saw it it changed my whole outlook on life,” she said.

“I have been chasing those amazing southern lights ever since.”

As bee populations decline, can technology help fill the gap?

PBS NewsHour   Published on Jul 25, 2019

Humans rely heavily on pollinator bees to sustain food production globally. But for decades, the insects’ population has declined, in part because of pesticide use. If the die-off continues, it will have huge economic and public health consequences for people. William Brangham reports on groups that are working on innovative ways to save the world’s jeopardized bee population — or supplement it.

The New Silk Road, Part 1: From China to Pakistan | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on Jul 20, 2019

The New Silk Road is a mammoth project intended to connect China with the West. It’s a gigantic infrastructure project that Beijing says will benefit everyone. But this two-part documentary shows China’s predominant self-interest and geopolitical ambitions. The old Silk Road is a legend, whereas the New Silk Road is a real megaproject. China wants to reconnect the world though a network of roads, railways, ports and airports between Asia and Europe. A team of reporters travels by sea and land along the New Silk Road and shows how China, with the largest investment program in history, is expanding its influence worldwide. Their journey begins in Shenzhen on the Pearl River Delta. This is where China’s legendary rise to an economic superpower began 40 years ago. The private market economy experiment unleashed forces that allowed Shenzhen to grow into a mega-metropolis. The team takes a container ship towards Southeast Asia. Its first stop is the port city of Sihanoukville in Cambodia. A joke is making the rounds there these days: you can now travel to China without a passport and without leaving your own country. Sihanoukville is now almost part of China itself! The Chinese have financed practically everything built here in the recent past: the extension of the port, new roads, bridges and factories. Many Cambodians are unhappy and feel like losers in the boom. Rising prices and rents are making the poor even poorer. But for land and house owners, on the other hand, it’s a bonanza. In Myanmar, resistance is already growing. Locals in Kachin have successfully blocked a new dam project, asking how the Chinese could produce energy for their own country whilst leaving the locals themselves without electricity? The Myanmar government pulled the emergency brake and the huge Chinese dam project did not get beyond the first concrete piers in the river. The Karakorum Highway from Kashgar in China across the Roof of the World to Islamabad in Pakistan is one of the most difficult and dangerous roads in this breathtaking mountain world. Once the road is finished, it often disintegrates again, and rock falls and landslides block the highway as if the Karakorum Mountains are trying to deny China strategic access to the Arabian Sea. The first part of the report ends in Islamabad. ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

The New Silk Road, part 2: From Kyrgyzstan to Duisburg | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on Jul 20, 2019

The New Silk Road is a mammoth project meant to connect China with the West. It’s a gigantic infrastructure project that Beijing says will benefit all. But this two-part documentary shows another side: of China’s self-interest and geopolitical ambitions. China’s path to global power leads through the legendary trade road. Our authors travel west on two separate paths: One team follows the sea route, along which China is expanding its support bases, while the other follows the ancient Silk Road through Central Asia. Their journey takes them through stunning landscapes and to magical places with ancient caravanserais, where the lore of the old Silk Road lives on. At the same time, they observe China’s overwhelming new influence in immense construction sites and shipping hubs. People everywhere are hoping the new trade will bring them and their children work and prosperity, just as the old Silk Road did hundreds of years ago. But others fear that a future dominated by China will bring them no good at all. “Clean water, the mountains and nature are much more important than the money they give us,” the filmmakers learn in Kyrgyzstan. Chinese investment has not only bestowed the country with better roads, power lines and railway lines, but also with environmental pollution, corruption and crippling debt. Oman is another stop on the line, where Beijing has taken over large parts of a new Special Economic Zone in the desert city of Duqm. You can still see traditional Arab dhows in the old harbor at Sur, but they no longer have a place in today’s international trade. Instead, the horizon is dotted with huge container ships, many of them flying the Chinese flag. Meanwhile, the French port city of Marseille is aiming to become the New Silk Road’s European bridgehead. A small container village in the hills above the city is the first step. Cheap textiles from the Far East are delivered here to the “Marseille International Fashion Center”. MIF 68 for short – 68 is considered a lucky number in China – is geared towards distributing China’s products throughout Europe. The two-part documentary shows the breathtaking dimensions of this gigantic project – one where, it would seem, no stone will be left unturned. ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Todd William: Why Keep Spending Money on Space Exploration?

With so many problems here on earth requiring our attention, how is it possible to justify spending money to explore space? One of the best answers I’ve heard to this was found in a letter written over 40 years ago.

This question was posed to Dr. Ernst Stublinger, the associate director of Science at NASA in the early 1970s. It was asked by a Nun, who felt strongly that the money would better be spent helping starving children.

As part of Stublinger’s reply, he told the following story about a Count from the 1500s:

The Count

About 400 years ago, there lived a count in a small town in Germany. He was one of the benign counts, and he gave a large part of his income to the poor in his town. This was much appreciated, because poverty was abundant during medieval times, and there were epidemics of the plague which ravaged the country frequently.

One day, the count met a strange man. He had a workbench and little laboratory in his house, and he labored hard during the daytime so that he could afford a few hours every evening to work in his laboratory. He ground small lenses from pieces of glass; he mounted the lenses in tubes, and he used these gadgets to look at very small objects.

The count was particularly fascinated by the tiny creatures that could be observed with the strong magnification, and which he had never seen before. He invited the man to move with his laboratory to the castle, to become a member of the count’s household, and to devote henceforth all his time to the development and perfection of his optical gadgets as a special employee of the count.

The townspeople, however, became angry when they realized that the count was wasting his money, as they thought, on a stunt without purpose. “We are suffering from this plague,” they said, “while he is paying that man for a useless hobby!” But the count remained firm. “I give you as much as I can afford,” he said, “but I will also support this man and his work, because I know that someday something will come out of it!”

Indeed, something very good came out of this work, and also out of similar work done by others at other places: the microscope. It is well known that the microscope has contributed more than any other invention to the progress of medicine, and that the elimination of the plague and many other contagious diseases from most parts of the world is largely a result of studies which the microscope made possible.

The count, by retaining some of his spending money for research and discovery, contributed far more to the relief of human suffering than he could have contributed by giving all he could possibly spare to his plague-ridden community.

Full letter found here:
http://www.lettersofnote.com/2012/08/why-explore-space.html

With this in mind, how can anyone argue with spending money on space exploration given that less than 1% of the US Budget goes to NASA?

The Earth and Moon are like identical twins, made up of the exact same materials — which is really strange, since no other celestial bodies we know of share this kind of chemical relationship. What’s responsible for this special connection? Looking for an answer, planetary scientist and MacArthur “Genius” Sarah T. Stewart discovered a new kind of astronomical object — a synestia — and a new way to solve the mystery of the Moon’s origin.

Two Collaborative Murals by Pat Perry and Local Schoolchildren Connect Communities in Iraq and Maine

July 26, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Detroit-based artist Pat Perry (previously) travels widely to create drawings, paintings, and murals inspired by the diverse cultures and landscapes of different parts of the world, often with an eye toward forgotten or marginalized people and places. Partnering with aptART and the Good Works Foundation, Perry’s most recent project took him to Maine and Iraq, where he collaboratively designed and painted a pair of murals with local schoolchildren. The two fifth grade classes, located over 5,600 miles apart in Biddeford and Slemani, got to know each other by exchanging videos and artwork. They then assisted Perry with painting their own messages on the new murals.

The resulting project, OPENING LINES, depicts a child in each mural holding a red telephone. Because their backs are turned, the viewer can imagine whether each subject is speaking or listening. Surrounding each figure are doodles and messages written in both English and Arabic by Perry’s young collaborators. Samantha Robison of aptART tells Colossal, “With cultural overlap across the globe unavoidable, the peril of stereotype can be lessened by individual, personal acquaintances across borders; a literal face rather than an idea of one. The most integral part of equality is providing platforms for people to speak, to create, to be listened to.”

The video below offers a glimpse behind the scenes of OPENING LINES. You can follow along with aptART’s youth programming on Instagram and explore more of Perry’s wide-ranging humanist work (including limited edition prints) on his website and Instagram.

Black Swallowtail Butterfly and Ing’s Garden

Captured by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts on Wednesday, July 24, 2019

At the Backyard Garden, Downtown Newark, New Jersey

I usually see Yellow Swallowtail butterflies every year and hardly see any of Black Swallowtail butterflies, but this year I saw this Black Swallowtail butterfly before I saw the Yellow Swallowtail butterfly.  I was lucky to capture the butterfly on my camcorder for only three minutes.  Yellow Swallowtail butterflies usually stay to drink the nectar from the Butterfly bush flowers for about thirty minutes or more.  

I enjoy all kinds of flowers but every year I wait for these large pink flowers.  The flower diameter is about ten inches.  The flower will last only one day.  If the weather is very hot then by the afternoon the flower will wither away.  This year we were very lucky to see a lot of flowers blossom.

These white little daisies have a nice character of their own compared to the other larger flowers in the garden.  They standout strongly and have a nice contrast to the green leaves around them.

Kai at the Maker Space room, in the Mezzanine, of the Newark Museum on Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

The lady who takes care of the room showed Kai the big foam blocks that he can build something from.

Kai constructed a form of a tall building.

Suddenly, after Kai finished his building, he knocked his building down.  He seemed to enjoy it.  I think he was acting like Godzilla who likes to destroy buildings by knocking them down.  Kai loves to watch Godzilla movies.  He goes to John and asks him to turn on the Godzilla movies.  I have to talk to John about this instance.

Kai drove into his building and then he lied flat on the floor.

Kai wanted to play hide and seek in the hiding place.

Time to go home, Kai put the foam blocks back where they belong, but still wanted to play for last time.  He said “I will build the chair to sit on.”

Kai was sitting happily on his throne.

Ms. Fran Garrido, Early Childhood Coordinator gave me the information about their activities for children.

Monarch Butterfly, Saturday, July 20, 2019

Poem and Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

Oh!  Monarch Butterfly!!!

You come to visit me again this year

You are the first one

I see today on Saturday, July 20, 2019

You look lovely as always

We are ready for you

With my beautiful purple butterfly bush flowers

All in full bloom

The nectar you need to survive to fly to your mate

And for you to lay your eggs

Your little ones of the next generation

The nectar is here for you

Thanks for fertilizing the flowers

Some will produce fruits

For human to consume

You not only beautify the world

With your pretty wings

Your also benefit the trees

Providing fruits for creatures of the earth

We need you

I am longing to see you

You make me so happy

Capturing you in my camcorder

For other to see

You give joy to me

My day is complete

Oh!  My Monarch Butterfly!!!

I love you

TED Talks: The next global agricultural revolution,

Conventional meat production causes harm to our environment and presents risks to global health, but people aren’t going to eat less meat unless we give them alternatives that cost the same (or less) and that taste the same (or better). In an eye-opening talk, food innovator and TED Fellow Bruce Friedrich shows the plant- and cell-based products that could soon transform the global meat industry — and your dinner plate.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

About the speaker

Bruce Friedrich · Food innovator

TED Fellow Bruce Friedrich plans to compete with the meat industry on its own terms — by creating alternatives to conventional meat that taste the same or better and cost less.

Six of the 50 Azalea Trail Maids gather under oak trees. The dresses come in six different colors, but only the queen of the court wears pink.   Adair Freeman Rutledge

The Dress Hasn’t Changed, But The Girls Have

July 7, 20197:00 AM ET   Lindsey Feingold

Photo Stories From NPR

They marched in President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration parade.

They appeared at processions ranging from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City and Disney’s Easter Parade in Orlando, Fla., to the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, Calif.

They are the Azalea Trail Maids — the embodiment of old school Southern hospitality with a modern twist.

Photographer Adair Rutledge, a native of Mobile, Ala., returned to her hometown to learn more about how some girls are redefining what it means to be a symbol of the South — while they wear a 50-pound, custom-made antebellum dress.

To be one of the 50 Azalea Trail Maids, you have to be chosen — and only those with impressive resumes get the honor. The girls Rutledge profiled were valedictorians, National Merit Scholarship winners and even in ROTC. And the interview process is extensive. “A lot of them take classes and rehearse for years,” Rutledge says.

The selective process and preparation is meant to prepare them to be ambassadors for their town — a modern version of the Southern belle.

Once chosen, they represent Mobile for a year. When wearing the dresses, which can cost up to $6,000, they usually don’t speak; their duty is to smile, wave and have their photo taken.

Rutledge hopes her project will help people work through what seem like contradictions: very accomplished women wearing Southern plantation-era gowns while representing Alabama’s third-largest city.

“There’s sort of a disconnect between what the dress represents historically and these multicultural, highly accomplished modern young women who wear it now,” she says. “They’re not exact replicas, but they are modeled after the attire of the white Southern plantation-era elite, which means that they are the gowns that were once worn by the wives of slave owners. … I really want people to be asking these questions around gender and identity and race and the tensions that are created from being a young Southern black woman wearing an antebellum hoop skirt.”

A Collaboratively Painted ‘Mural of Brotherhood’ Stretches for Over a Mile on Mexico’s Border

June 26, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

All photographs courtesy of Enrique Chiu

Over the past two and a half years, nearly 4,000 volunteers have converged on the US/Mexico border to assist artist Enrique Chiu with painting a mural. Chiu began the project on Election Day in 2016, and once his collaborative project is complete, the “Mural of Brotherhood” will span a mile of Mexico’s border frontage in Tijuana. Shorter segments will also be created in other regions to connect the project to the southern edge of the border. The wide range of styles, including written phrases and more illustrative narratives reflects the diversity of those who have worked alonside Chiu to complete the expansive mural.

Chiu was born in Mexico and has spent 14 years living in the U.S., both as a child and as an adult. However, he re-rooted himself in Tijuana’s vibrant arts scene ten years ago. In an interview with Hyperallergic Chiu explained, “the murals spread messages of peace to people crossing the border by car or on foot,” and are “intended to be a final glimpse of hope for migrants risking danger as they cross northward.”

A recently released documentary by Alejandro Arguelles Benitez follows the project. You can watch the trailer below, and track the progress of the mural on Instagram. (via Hyperallergic)

A Child Peers Over the US/Mexico Border Wall in a Giant New Photographic Work by JR

September 7, 2017   Christopher Jobson

French artist JR just unveiled a new work in progress at the US/Mexico border. The large

photographic piece depicts a child peering over a border fence from the Mexican side, apparently in reference to Trump’s effort to rescind the DACA program which protects the children of undocumented immigrants from being deported. The artist is known for his towering photographic installations backed by scaffolding such as his pieces at the Louvre and the Rio Olympics.

JR will be in LA tonight at Blum & Poe for a discussion with curator Pedro Alonzo about “immigration in the artist’s practice.” Admission is free.

Kai colored the Lizard for his Mommy and Daddy on Friday, July 12, 2019

Kai was played with toy trains on the Mezzanine at the Newark Museum.

There is a great artwork on the wall to inspire children and adults who visit the room.

Kai played with Lego blocks on the wall.

Kai went into the room that has light rods in different colors from the ceiling.  He seems to be amazed to see his multiple image on the wall of mirrors around him.
