One year later...IT RETURNS!!!! Column by Christopher Shultz Happy Halloween everyone! If you're like me—a lover of the macabre and an all-around weirdo—then today is basically Christmas for you. This is the day adult-you hearkens back to childhood by donning a costume, gorging on miniature-sized candies, and letting the devil in for a little while. Show More Summary
Admirers of the assemblage artist, Joseph Cornell, an admirer of poetry and inspiration to many poets as well, will be pleased to know that the Getty Research Institute has acquired a stunning trove of correspondences between Cornell and Susanna De Maria Wilson, one of his first assistants and the then-wife of the minimalist sculptor, Walter [...]
A successful writer needs to master the craft of writing, but there's another requirement and this one can't be taught: a thick skin. Writer Barbara Henderson revealed her experiences with this, for an article on ChronicleLive.com, written by Hannah Flint:...
There’s nothing more personal than creative expression. And so experimenting with how you make music is more than just novelty: it’s a way to understand the fundamentals of how we relate to machines. And thinking outside the normal avenues means the ability to reach new people, as SoundLab is doing with audiences with learning disabilities. Show More Summary
What started as a fun bit on Halloween has turned into a fierce battle over the years: Which morning show co-hosts have the best costumes? This time, it was a war between the old and new. “Good Morning America” went topical (Newlyweds George Clooney/Amal Alamuddin, Prince George, Ariana Grande, “Frozen,” obviously) while “Today” dressed up as […]

Some people spend weeks planning elaborate Halloween costumes designed to shock and awe. Not us. And probably not you. We’ll start rummaging through our closets, oh, about five hours from now, searching for some combination we can at least pretend is a cleverly-thought-through costume. That’s why we always fall back on celebrities — because, hey, […]
WITH “Mr Turner”, Mike Leigh may have created the ultimate biopic for people who don’t usually like such films. The story of the last years of J.M.W.

Does Prospect.3 live up to its predecessor? No.
Lava is unpredictable. It could go left or right, up or down. It will move 5 metres in an hour, then not move at all. And it usually moves slowly, like squeezing toothpaste down a hill - but it will get there eventually. Unlike a tsunami or an earthquake or even a hurricane, it's a painfully slow death.
"I saw the men trying to push back the layer of foam on top of the water to make enough space for the women to stand in order to complete the rituals before sunrise. It was quite a struggle, man against foam."

Here, the sound artist Mileese takes the electrical impulses (or “micro-voltages”) emitted by plants “through the virtue of their livingness” and converts them into binary code. In turn, the plants generate sound through the mediatory [...]

Guy Fawkes’ Night is 5 November, so perhaps it’s a good idea to brush up on the ol’ fireworks skills in preparation for displays this weekend and next, yes? Photographing fireworks is […]
