HAPPY EARTH DAY 2014!

In celebration of Earth Day 2014, the Bureau of Land Management is introducing three vintage posters and postcards depicting some of the spectacular landscapes of our National Conservation Lands. As a part of a continuing series, the purpose of the campaign is to highlight these ruggedly beautiful and culturally rich places that belong to all Americans. 

The inaugural posters and postcards artistically portray three different areas, illustrating the diversity of the landscapes protected under the system. They are Eagletail Mountains Wilderness Area in Arizona, Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument in Montana and Headwaters Forest Reserve in California.  

There are now nearly 900 designated areas of National Conservation Lands spanning almost 27 million acres – or 11 percent of the lands managed by BLM. They include national monuments, national conservation areas, wilderness and wilderness study areas, national wild and scenic rivers, national scenic trails and national historic trails.

The Pixels Crossing: Sensory Tunnel by Miguel Chevalier

Using LED technology ‘The Pixels Crossing 2012' by French designer Miguel Chevalier is a sensory artwork completed in collaboration with Trafik and sound composer Michel Redolfi. Installed inside the temporary tunnel, connecting the forum des halles and the place carrée in paris, the light piece features successive, multicolored graphical scenes that harmoniously follow to a musical rhythm. a cadenced wave pattern of sound palpitates from the walls with light diffracting within the alveolar polycarbonate panels. Spanning along the 40m tunnel, the 4m high sensory artwork enriches pedestrian's experience as they walk along the transit route. transforming a regular tunnel into a magical and contemporary passage.

Sergio Albiac creates portraits using imagery from the Hubble telescope.

In a nutshell, this experiment, with the participation of an Internet audience, will produce as many artworks as possible (during a limited time, beginning 18th of June 2013). An automated process will create human portraits as generative collages, using as sources some images from the hubble space telescope. Generated portraits will be exhibited at the flickr Stardust Portrait exhibition.
