Exploring around our country's shipping ports and industrial yards, where the accumulated detritus of our consumption is exposed to view like eroded layers in the Grand Canyon, I find evidence of a slow-motion apocalypse in progress. I am appalled by these scenes, and yet also drawn into them with awe and fascination. The immense scale of our consumption can appear desolate, macabre, oddly comical and ironic, and even darkly beautiful; for me its consistent feature is a staggering complexity.

Salil Desai, Sangeeta Bhatia, Mehmet Toner and Daniel Irimia, Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, MIT This image depicts the chemotactic behaviour of cancer cells using a combination of fluorescence and phase contrast microscopy. Chemotaxis, or the directed motion of cells in the presence of a small-molecule gradient, is essential in the spread of cancer from one area of the body to another. This process is known as the metastatic cascade. The individual channels are 12 microns wide, approximately one-tenth the width of a single human hair.
Kodachrome may be out of stock, but for some it will never go out of style. This set dating back decades was appropriated, drilled and stitched back together to form a flexible but light-filtering window shade for an entry doorway YarnZombie (Jacki Vance-Kuss) shot the images of the final product; Travis punched a pair of holes in each corner of each slide, then looped chainmail rings to connect each slide to the next in rows and columns. So far, so good – no fading reported as of month five and counting. No doubt, though, the images will blur in time, and the paper sides of the slides will yellow in turn.
