Kids can learn a lot by playing in the dirt. This project in Brooklyn looks terrific, and it’s reminiscent of our Family Garden. ~LM

Colorful Constructed Pathways Formed in Nature

London-based artist Ellie Davies creates lengthy paths through the forest as a form of installation art. Just like Hansel and Gretel left a trail of pebbles to find their way home through the trees, Davies guides her viewers along prominently placed trails of ferns and foliage in this project entitled Constructed Pathways. After creating an extremely conspicuous path, Davies photographs the scene as both a landscape and an artificially created object.

Davies created this project in order to investigate her own relationship with nature. She says, “If all natural spaces are utilized, shaped, managed, and farmed by man, can we ever access the natural world on its own terms?” The artist constructs her installations among very natural landscapes using materials such as paint, powder, wool, and paper. The flow and movement of each pathway reflects the natural flow of the land in an effort to reflect what Davies describes as “the ‘constructed’ nature of landscapes, with particular reference to the long tradition of landscape painting and its role in the creation of meaning and myth making.” As humans affect the environment, nothing remains completely untouched and natural, and Davies works to explore the meaning of that transformation through her work.

New research reveals the covert world of fish bioluminescence
A team of researchers led by scientists from the American Museum of Natural History has released the first report of widespread biofluorescence in the tree of life of fishes, identifying more than 180 species (!) that glow in a wide range of colors and patterns.
“We’ve long known about biofluorescence underwater in organisms like corals, jellyfish, and even in land animals like butterflies and parrots, but fish biofluorescence has been reported in only a few research publications,” said Museum Curator John Sparks. “This paper is the first to look at the wide distribution of biofluorescence across fishes, and it opens up a number of new research areas.”
