“Since 2004 I’ve been researching, working with biologists, and traveling the world to photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older,” explains photographer Rachel Sussman.

Excited to see Gregory Euclide open up a new body of work, Whose Land We Laid Down & Wiped Away (Mine to Make / Bury to Forget), at Stolenspace Gallery in London this week, November 7, 2013. Euclide's work will continue with his fantastic three-dimensional topographical scenes, "addressing land, nature and how we negotiate the contradictions in our way of defining these terms."

Yesterday, we showed you a preview of Stanley Donwood's new show, Far Away is Close at Hand in Images of Elsewhere, opening that London's The Outsiders gallery on September 20, 2013. When we were looking at the new work, we started seeing a theme... a theme that has entered Donwood's work with Radiohead and the King Of Limbs LP: trees! Lots of lonely, ghostly, reaching, bare trees. So we asked Mr Donwood... what's up with the trees?

A great series of installations and site-specific works by Fesson Ludovic, where he balances materials found in nature on water or where shade could be utilized to create an illusion of balance and symmetry.

It's no doubt that the Rockaways in New York faced some extreme damage during Hurricane Sandy, and right beside the site where the boardwalk once stood, MoMA PS1 has constructed and rebuilt a large geodesic dome as a space to percolate thought, host events, and create an exciting exchange of various kinds. We are eager to see what results. It will be officially opening this Friday, March 29, 2013.

As you know reading our site over the years, we love mural projects, public art, and especially, public art in unexpected places (for example, see Escif & San's tour of the Southwest). That is why we are fascinated by Jane Kim, an artist, science illustrator, and founder of INK-DWELL Studio that has started the Migrating Mural project, a series of "murals painted along migration corridors shared by people and endangered animals."

Just a casual tightrope walk by moonlight near Cathedral Peak at Yosemite National Park in California. Dean Potter took the walk, and amazingly, this was shot from over 1 mile away with a Canon 800mm and 2X by Michael Schaefer. Watch the video after the jump . . .

These aerial views of coast side communities before and after Hurricane Sandy roared across the East Coast offer impressive details of the power of the storm. Boats were moved from harbors into neighborhood streets, piers were demolished, roofs ripped off, and sand was pushed into and over blocks and blocks of homes.

Have you moved recently? Are you of the age, say, late 20s, early 30s, where at somepoint in your life owning, buying, and collecting CDs was something you did so now you have over a thousand just taking up space? Well, British artist Bruce Monro has found a place for 65,000 recycled Cds: make waterlilies. Why didn't we think of that?
