It's Complicated

Haari Tesla (Illuminated Code From Space) 2014

"Macrocosm and microcosm is an ancient Greek Neo-Platonic schema of seeing the same patterns reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level). In the system the midpoint is Man, who summarizes the cosmos.”

Wired Science large and small, hundreds of thousands of craters scar the surface of Mars, hollowed out by a multitude of asteroids and comets that impacted the Red Planet throughout its history. This image shows a region of the planet’s northern hemisphere known as Hephaestus Fossae – after the Greek god of fire – that was imaged by the high-resolution stereo camera on ESA’s Mars Express orbiter on 28 December 2007.

MINIFLUX is an exhibition of very small lighting objects disseminated along a luminous route that begins at Roger Tator design gallery. Inside several shop windows, passerby will discover little boxes that serve as mini-galleries containing the works of artists and designers. The variety of artists and projects will provide to a wide audience moments of reflection, contemplation and magic. MINIFLUX is probably the project of the Lyon “Festival of lights” which is the most energy efficient, the consumption of all the projects does not exceed that of a single flashlight.

The claystones were formed and coloured about 120 million years ago in the sediments of the inland sea. Hot springwater must have passed through the holes of the stones, so that iron and maganese compound were able to deposit. The colors were then fixed by atmospheric oxygen and sulphide gas. Thanks nature for this phenomenon.

“The fragility of crystal is not a weakness but a fineness. My parents understood that fine crystal glass had to be cared for or may be shattered. But when it came to my brother, they didn’t seem to know or care that their course of their secret action brought the kind of devastation that could cut them.” ― Jon KrakauerInto the Wild

China Danxia -  a UNSECO World Heritage Site and the name given in China to landscapes developed on continental red terrigenous sedimentary beds influenced by endogenous forces (including uplift) and exogenous forces (including weathering and erosion). The inscribed site comprises six areas found in the sub-tropical zone of south-west China.  They are characterized by spectacular red cliffs and a range of erosional landforms, including dramatic natural pillars, towers, ravines, valleys and waterfalls. These rugged landscapes have helped to conserve sub-tropical broad-leaved evergreen forests, and host many species of flora and fauna, about 400 of which are considered rare or threatened.
