Evan Zodl: The unexpected math of origami. The Future of Control: Luis Fernando Benedit’s Labyrinths Series. In 1972, Argentine artist Luis Fernando Benedit installed a hydroponic greenhouse environment, containing seventy tomato plants and fifty-six lettuce plants artificially supplied with light and a chemical growth formula, as well as an environment for white mice, “consisting of a maze, food source, material for burrowing, and an enclosed area for sleeping,” at MoMA.
This essay considers Benedit’s bioart practice––and its conceptions of technology, the museum space and the human and non-human systems unfolding there––within the history of conceptualism in Latin America. El tema de la vida resurge inagotable: La biología se convierte en arte y el arte, a su vez, en vida. Man Uses a GPS Tracker to Turn His Bike Rides Into Gigantic Drawings.

He traces them, first in pencil and then with his bike – with his GPS tracker on – and the result is magnificent! He uses an app on his phone called Strava that allows runners and cyclists to map their runs and bike rides ahead of time and then tells them how long they took to complete the route. “The best ones pop off the map,” Lund tells Bored Panda.

Textured Wool Rugs Bring the Natural Pastures of Argentinian Landscapes Indoors. Alexandra Kehayoglou creates unique wool rugs that serve as an eye-catching addition to any room.
The Argentinian artist makes use of a hand-tufting technique to form lush greenery, taking several months to complete just one of her signature woolen creations. Her pieces are multifunctional, and can be used as rugs, blankets, or even a distinctive tapestry that brings a piece of the outside world indoors. Through the use of earthy tones and textured fabric, Kehayoglou is able to mimic the natural composition of moss, water, and shrubbery to produce stunning recreations of rural pastures and lush meadows.
The entire creative process surrounding Kehayoglou's work is very close to home. Her rugs are made out of discarded thread scraps collected from the family's carpet factory in Buenos Aires and she draws on the natural beauty of her native country to create her pieces.

Beginning with a white page can be overwhelming for any artist, which is why Ed Fairburn adopted an unusual canvas.
He repurposes old maps, transforming them into beautiful, highly-detailed portraits. By merging landscape and humanity, Fairburn reminds us that we are a product of our environment—and vice versa. Fairburn often spends hours studying the map’s terrain before beginning his artistic process.

A Factory that Processes Your Dandelion Wishes. LOS ANGELES — Across every metropolitan area, there are numerous electrical substations that keep power pulsing through the city.
They’re home to steel behemoths that generate high-voltage electrical currents, which speed through the grid of cables and transmission towers until they eventually power the lights in our home. Substations are dangerous; a wrong step could electrocute someone in an instant. But amazingly, if you look carefully, you’ll see that electricity does not deter the life of flora and fauna. Poking through the gravel, there may be a fragile dandelion shedding its seeds in the wind. On its surface, there is nothing linking a fleet of transformers to a delicate weed, but the anonymous art collective simply known as the Art Department — known for constructing a teahouse in Griffith Park, dropping jacaranda petals in alleyways, and nurturing bioluminescent algae — has found a way to show a kinship between these two subjects.
And Now, Abandoned Dollhouses for your Inner Demon Child. Andy Goldsworthy Nature Art in Winter. Andy Goldsworthy is a fascinating British artist who does poetic and beautiful nature art. His work is fleeting, most of it lasting just mere minutes before being washed or blown away. We’ve posted about him before, and his work lingers in the mind far longer than it lasts in nature. Some of his work melts, some of it is so fragile that it probably lasts just until the camera shutter clicks. Unfortunately his creations are often poorly photographed, and searches for him return low resolution, muddy images, which clearly do not do his work justice. The bulk of his fleeting nature work was done in the 70’s and 80’s in his native England, although more permanent installation have been recently made in prestigious museums like The National Museum of Scotland, The DeYoung, The National Gallery of Art, and many others.
