Richard Louv, The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder
The investigative report launched on Wednesday, titled “No one is safe“ (http://bit.ly/1YdwUJP), showed that the Tesso Nilo National Park in Riau and other protected areas which are home to endangered Sumatran tigers, elephants, and orangutans, are systematically being destroyed to grow palm oil.
More than 80% of the 83,000 hectares national park has been converted to illegal oil palm plantations, leaving only 18 per cent, or 15,000 hectares of natural forest standing.
Goodbye to the great genius Italian writer, philosopher, and semiotician Umberto Eco (5 Jan. 1932 – 19 Feb. 2016). Thank you Mr. Eco for every idea that you shared with us in your books. #RIP

Science of the Unseen: Digital Art Perspectives
Online Exhibition of the ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Art Community
What goes unseen, unfelt, or unheard? In this online exhibition, the artworks converge with scientific experiment, using digital tools to creatively reinterpret the imperceptible and science of the unseen.
Artworks in Science of the Unseen: Digital Art Perspectives think creatively about questions of scale and how unseen processes animate larger effects. By using digital tools and computational programs, we see with new eyes as we view visual material from the microscopic cell to the cosmic universe. Technology increasingly alters the senses and our experience of the biological, astrological, and geological landscape. From our new ways of seeing, questions emerge such as: how does nano-technology mirror and magnify the art of nature? How does visualizing insect burrows in trees allow us to interpret a larger ecosystem? Or we can ask what still remains unseen: how do organisms form new imperceptible habits in response to technology?
