There’s something eerily beautiful about Goldsworthy’s snow and ice sculptures… I can’t quite put my finger on it (just as well, as I imagine it’d get very cold). There’s a quiet serenity about them that I simply love, and have loved for many years. I’d imagine that stumbling across one of them would be like walking into a snippet of space that had bled through from another world. It is not out of place, yet it is clearly there by purpose. It’s wondrous but at the same time, a little somber… None of these marvels exist anymore, having succumb to the ravages of the sun and wind, and the relentless march of time, as all things shall…

Robert Smithson, 1938-1973, is known for his earth works, or land art pieces. Spiral Jetty, 1970, is located in the Great Salt Lake, Utah and is made of natural objects such as mud, precipitated salt crystals, and rocks. The piece is part of its environment so much so that it is not always visible due to the changing water level.

in the day after tomorrow: images of our earth in crisis, j. henry fair documents stunning images of the toxic industrial processes polluting our planet in the hopes of ultimately effectuating change in consumer behaviour. 

as fair writes, “i began to photograph all these things with an eye to making them both beautiful and frightening simultaneously. …they are captivating in the same way that timeless pieces by the great abstract expressionists are. …[and] because [they] are so beautiful, people want to learn more about what is going on in each image.”

he continues, “they bring into sharp relief the catastrophic damage wreaked by the production of oil, coal power, and paper - the products most of us consume, in some form or other, on a daily basis. …so, [if seeing the fifth and seventh images, for example] means we all demanded toilet paper be made from old newspapers instead of blithely purchasing brands made from old-growth forests, those forests would be saved as would all of the animals who live there.”

photos are of the following: 1. particulate matter separated from the extracted bitumen of the tar sands in fort mcmurray, alberta, canada; 2. the BP oil spill in the gulf of mexico; 3. bushes intruding into a pond where the world’s most widely used herbicide is manufactured. luling, louisiana; 4. ash waste at a coal power station in canadys, south carolina; 5. aerators agitate the waste from a pulp mill in baton rouge, louisiana, turning the liquid to a foam. this plant manufactures popular brands of paper towels and printer paper; 6. mountaintop removal in kayford, west virginia; 7. waste from a paper mill in zachary, louisiana; 8. many different compounds, including different types of oil, emerge from the subaqueous macondo well in the gulf of mexico; 9. containment impoundments for the by products of washed phosphate after its extraction in wauchula, florida; 10. "red mud" bauxite waste from aluminium production containing significant amounts of heavy metal contamination in darrow, louisiana

3D Objects in One Dimension

Incredible series of digital images exploring fractals by digital artist Tom Beddard. The images were rendered with the artist’s WebGL 3D fractal creator. Fractals have a mesmerizing effect when stared at. An endless array of images repeating and morphing into a new images. What is more fascinating is the appearance of a 3D object that is actually one dimensional.
