Edinburgh University scientist Dr. Ian Woodhouse hates deforestation. You like art. So how’s this… how’s your precious, precious art lookin’ now, with all the trees clear-cut? Ah-HA! Posted on his blog Forest Planet and ArtInfo, Woodhouse had the trees rather skillfully Photoshopped out of Georges Seurat’s Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Grande Jatte (1884-86), John Constable’s The Hay Wain (1821) and Vincent van Gogh’s Olive Trees with […]

Science: Still a van Gogh fan boy. They’ve tried to genetically replicate the sunflower seeds from Vincent’s Sunflowers. They’ve investigated his “mu-u-urder” most foul. Now, Japanese medical scientist and poet Kazunori Asada insists that the reason Vinny painted such vivid, clashing, incongruent colors was because he couldn’t see the fuck he was doing. Amazing. Using a special immersive simulator of various […]

This time, they simply must know the molecular basis of the genetic mutation in those voluminous Sunflowers you kept painting in the 1800s.

Here’s NASA’s amazing animated visualization of the Earth’s many currents as recorded between 2006 and 2007. Watch it circle and swirl, swoosh along the planet’s surface and seep inside the continental clefts, all done up in the aesthetics of Vincent Van Gogh’s starry sky visions from his sanatorium’s window. It suddenly all makes so much […]

Pulitzer Prize-wining duo Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith want to “upend art history” and prick holes in the great suicide tale of Vincent Van Gogh. They claim that Vinny couldn’t have possible shot himself with a revolver in the chest in a field and then shlepped to die at an inn more than a mile away while […]

A small Cali town’s relentlessly humiliated surfer statue was meticulously “vandalized” yesterday when Snyder decked out the “Cardiff Kook” into Vincent Van Gogh for Vinny’s b-day, severed ear and absinthe and everything. He’s fully costumed, bloody-bandaged and sporting an easel “welded to fit on the nose of the board” with “a painting of the view […]
