Dan Dennett: A Secular, Scientific Rebuttal

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

Philosopher Dan Dennett calls for religion — all religion — to be taught in schools, so we can understand its nature as a natural phenomenon. Then he takes on The Purpose-Driven Life, disputing its claim that, to be moral, one must deny evolution.

Arcosanti: An Urban Laboratory in the Arizona Desert

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Arcosanti is an experimental town that began construction in 1970 in central Arizona, 70 miles (110 km) north of Phoenix. Architect Paolo Soleri, using a concept he calls arcology (a portmanteau of architecture and ecology), started the town to demonstrate how urban conditions could be improved while minimizing the destructive impact on the earth.

The Transfigurative and Esoteric Art of A. Andrew Gonzalez

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

The paintings of Gonzalez are created with airbrushed acrylics on panel or canvas. Forms, values and highlighting are created by lifting pigment with an abrasive eraser, followed by the application of transparent layers of pigment. Influenced by idealism in the mystical, visionary and esoteric traditions, the artist describes his work as a contemporary Tantric or Transfigurative Art that explores the dramatic union of the sensual and spiritual. His work is akin to a revival of classical neoplatonic ideals centering on the figure as temple and vessel sublimed by transformative forces.

MUSEUM HRGIGER

On June 20, 1998, the MUSEUM HR GIGER opened its doors in the medieval Château St. Germain in the 400 year old historic, walled city of Gruyères, Switzerland. As the permanent home to many of Giger’s key works, the museum houses the largest and most impressive collection of the artist’s paintings and sculptures, furniture and film designs, dating from the early 1960’s till the present day. The museum’s top floor houses a permanent display of Giger’s own private art collection and the Museum Gallery where Giger curates one-man exhibitions on the work of other artists. The museum is a work in progress and a Giger Bar, adjoining the museum, is completed.
