    FreelandBuck’s Slipstream installation at the Bridge Gallery in New York - a physical structure that confronts that leap directly, translating a 2-dimensional digital line drawing into 3-dimensional space.

  5. The HBO series “Game of Thrones” transports audiences to a fantasy world in which the politics and violence are as brutally real as our own. The Dothraki are a nomadic warrior tribe that figure heavily in the series. When the show’s creators were looking for someone to invent a language for the Dothraki people, they needed something that sounded as believable as the bloody battles looked.
The Berkeley-trained linguist and Language Creation Society member David Peterson got the job when he submitted a 300-page book of Dothraki vocabulary and grammar. More.

  8. A year ago, the University of Wyoming’s Art Museum commissioned an outdoor sculpture from British artist Chris Drury. “Carbon Sink” was a 36-foot-diameter vortex of logs killed by pine beetles atop a bed of Wyoming coal. The artist said he wanted to draw a connection between Wyoming’s extractive industries and damage wrought by climate change (which has encouraged a devastating pine beetle infestation across the West). Following this year’s commencement — less than a year later — the sculpture was gone: the logs put in a scrap heap, and the coal into the university’s power plant. More.
