This Enchanted Bike Path Was Inspired By Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’
Van Gogh’s wildest dreams probably couldn’t prepare him, for example, for the Van Gogh-Roosegaarde Bicycle Path, an enchanting living artwork newly unveiled by Studio Roosegaarde. The kilometer-long path is adorned with a special paint that charges during the day and glows after dark. It runs through the Dutch province of Noord Brabant, where van Gogh was born and raised.

Arthur Obermayer a friend of Mr. Asimov found this piece that he wrote “On Creativity.” It is published for the first time in MIT Technology Review. It is a valuable piece to read about the process of creativity and sheds light on not only the process but also the type of person most likely to get new ideas. What he outlines is illuminating because one of the criteria is that it requires daring.
The European Union has announced the opening of the new STARTS platform; STARTS stands for Science, Technology and the ARTS.

Abelardo Morell’s photographs of snow are not what you would expect. Laced together from multiple negatives Morell captures textures from close up, panoramas and negative cliché verre prints into large-scale photographs.
Author Cate McQuaid says: “Morell depicts winter as rugged, encompassing, and ethereal.
For “A Mind of Winter,” one of the most challenging photographs to make was “Panorama of Winter Woods — Black & White Negatives.” When the temperature was 10 degrees and “We were out there for two or three hours,” Morell says. “We’d have to bring the camera into the car and warm it up.” Continue reading →
An Aquarium of Equations is an exhibition about the poetry of parametric equations, in the form of prints and computational visualizations.
