Hidden Time


Instead of a traditional ticking needle, Hidden Time uses a UV-printed gradient design to indicate the hour. Since the numbers are rendered in white, they blend in with the pale background when not offset by the swiveling shadow, evoking the idea of “hidden time.”

Does Trump believe in climate change?


President Donald Trump has signed an executive order rolling back Obama-era rules aimed at curbing climate change. The president said this would put an end to the "war on coal" and "job-killing regulations". The Energy Independence Executive Order suspends more than half a dozen measures enacted by his predecessor, and boosts fossil fuels. Business groups have praised the Trump administration's move but environmental campaigners have condemned it. Outside the White House, a few hundred protesters gathered to vent their displeasure at the executive order.

Immersive, Completely Silent “Desert”


Last year, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum captured the public’s attention with a working, solid gold toilet installed in one of its restrooms. This year, they're are going for something a little more subtle: A “desert” that’s acoustically soundproofed to prevent anything but the lowest of ambient sounds. PSAD Synthetic Desert III, as the installation is formally titled, is the creation of West Coast artist Doug Wheeler, who originally conceived the idea nearly 50 years ago.
 Working in collaboration with the museum, Wheeler is finally realizing the project after all this time. more

Chapel with Undulating Roof by Steyn Studio


The chapel, located on the Bosjes Farm in South Africa's picturesque Witzenberg district, was a collaboration between Steyn Studio and South African studio TV3 Architects.
 Its characteristic white canopy was conceived as a "lightweight and dynamic structure which appears to float within the valley" and pays tribute to the historic Cape Dutch gables dotting the rural landscapes of the Western Cape. The roof rises and falls to create a sinuous outline around all four facades and at certain points, the form dips to almost touch the surface of a reflective pond surrounding the building.

The house mouse has been hanging around humans for far longer than we thought.

By studying the fluctuations of house mouse fossils found in archaeological sites in the eastern Mediterranean, scientists have revealed that Mus musculus domesticus first cozied up to humans around 15,000 years ago. That would be about 3,000 years before the advent of agriculture.
 The findings offer an unusual glimpse into a murky period of human development, since the abundance of house mice teeth seems to track with our nomadic ancestors’ early experiments in settling down.
 That makes the new study “a nice example of how house mouse research can be helpful for studying our own history,” says MiloŇ° Machol√°n, an evolutionary biologist and co-author of The Evolution of the House Mouse.
