"After sculptor Sam Van Aken bought a failing orchard in upstate New York full of hundreds of different fruit trees, he began the pain-staking process of grafting several of the different varieties together into one tree. Six years later, the result is this 40-fruit bearing tree, which includes some heirloom varieties that are centuries old."
- Ria Misra, io9

Sam Van Aken's The Tree of 40 Fruit are the beginning of a narrative. As a symbolic number found throughout western religion and culture, the number 40 symbolizes the infinite, a bounty that is beyond calculation.
And this is only one of the Trees of 40 Fruits! Follow us for more updates on the series of trees.

Every night this month, from 11:57 to midnight, you can witness Chris Doyle's newest work, Bright Canyon, in “the great canyon that is Times Square.”

"It was a natural extension," says Doyle, "to make a project where I took the sort of nature around New York and brought it back to the center." Watch he video on Bright Canyon, and go see it for yourself!

Mary Cassatt - Girl Arranging Her Hair, 1886
I love the honesty of this portrait of a young girl, painted by Mary Cassatt. Any of her male contemporaries would have been prone to sexualize the young girl. But nothing of the sort graces this portrait; rather, Cassatt shows the girl, as she is, in all her awkward beauty.
