I want to live in the woods, too. I'm not sure I can design a treehouse fort type situation with skate bowl and hot tub beneath, but this feels very West Marin and pretty on point to living in the woods creatively. (If you live in the Bay, or have taken mushrooms and listened to the Dead, you know the West Marin reference). Foster Huntington created this treehouse with friends, and the making of is now part of a Kickstarter instructional book project, as well as a great documentation video of the process.

Italian artist Andreco was one of our absolute favorite aritsts from the Nuart program this year. With an emphasis on environmental and political themes, Andreco works in multiple genres, including street art, gallery work, and the occasional performance and installation piece. His new show, "From Clouds to Rocks," is up now at Traffic Gallery in Bergamo, Italy, and Andreco summarizes it as "inspired by the natural transformations and the phase transitions between solid, liquid and gaseous states of matter. In particular from gas to solid (deposition) and from solid to gas (sublimation). The show is part of the research work called 'Nature as Art'."

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 . . .
