Double Flower Power: Florae-Van Cleef and Arpels & Damien Hirst -Cherry Blossoms

The summer flowers in Paris have recently faded away but beautiful blooms can still be savored in two exhibitions this fall.   In the elegant courtyard of Hôtel d’Évreux in Place Vendôme, is the Van Cleef and Arpels show Florae. Japanese photographer Mika Ninagawa has created a kaleidoscope of highly saturated images of flowers projected on mirrored panels in a darkened, maze-like setting. In between the panels are one-hundred vintage and present-day pieces of Van Cleef jewelry floating i...

David Lynch's bizarre new Netflix short is a perfect companion to this quinoa recipe

David Lynch celebrated his 20th birthday by dropping a delightfully bizarre new short film on Netflix called WHAT DID JACK DO? The 17-minute-long murder mystery, which originally premiered at the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain in Paris in November 2017, stars Lynch as a grizzled detective interrogating a capuchin monkey named Jack. It's weird, and wonderful, and totally worth watching. After all, it's only a 17-minute investment. But the black-and-white footage and incongruous tonalit...

The Velvet Underground as Peanuts Characters: Snoopy Morphs Into Lou Reed, Charlie Brown Into Andy Warhol

The fun cartoon above was apparently found in a "Guide to the Velvet Underground and Andy Warhol's Factory" published by the French magazine, Les Inrockuptibles in 1990. It came around the same time the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain (located in Paris) held an exhibition dedicated to Andy Warhol. Of course, Warhol famously took a break from painting in the mid-1960s and, among other things, threw his influence behind the up-and-coming NYC band, The Velvet Underground. Serving as the ...

This Is What Extinction Sounds Like

We are all witnesses to climate change's devastating impact on our world. We just have to stop and listen. It was spring 2004. The air was cool and still, the encroaching dawn light outlined the horizon; and there, in the heart of California’s Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, was Bernie Krause busily setting up his microphone. The soundscape ecologist recorded the symphony of the forest’s sounds that day: the gurgle of the gushing stream; the melodic birdsong from sparrows and woodpeckers, robins an...
