Stunning multimedia work from Japanese artist

The word "multimedia" gets thrown around a lot when describing art that combines more than one mode of creation. It's also usually a good way to make us not care about the art being described.

The Kyoto-based musician/painter shoots everyday banal scenes then slows then down and smears them with digital colors and scores them with delicate,......read more

SoCal artist documents the collision of the natural and industrial worlds

Polluted soil beneath launch pads could cost $1 billion to remediate

When it comes to its environmental effects on Earth, space exploration is a dirty business.
