The long-lost archive of curious animals


Via We Make Money Not Art:

"The Media Space at the London's Science Museum has recently opened a retrospective of photographer Joan Fontcuberta's work. The series on show explore constellations, geography, natural history and many more science-related topics. Each of the body of works exhibited would deserve its own blog post but i'm going to focus on the Fauna series because it brings to the attention of the broader public the long-lost archives of a German zoologist called Professor Peter Ameisenhaufen."


The Garcia Memorial Fund


This week, a close colleague and his wife lost four members of their family in a drowning accident at Hagg Lake in Oregon. While I realize this may not effect you directly, they are desperately trying to wrap their minds around the sudden loss of three generations and how to move on from here. If you can help in any way, please consider it. I'll include a link below.
