As CNN reported on the supertrees, “It’s pretty innovative stuff. The structures mimic the ecological functions of real trees through their environmentally sustainable features. Some have photovoltaic cells on their canopies to harvest solar energy to light up at night, others are integrated with cooled conservatories and serve as air exhaust receptacles.”
Celebrating 125 years of National Geographic
"The Power of Photography: National Geographic 125 Years," an exhibit featuring a plethora of the longstanding publication’s finest photography, will be hosted by the Annenberg Space for Photography between Oct. 26 and April 27, 2014.
From co-curators Sarah Leen, director of photography for NatGeo and creative director Bill Marr:“
It started with this question–how do you build a photography show in a finite space that will represent a 125-year-long history of exploring the world and telling stories with photography? Well, you can’t. Not with any depth or surprises. So we abandoned the idea of doing a strictly print show and started to think of displaying the images on grids of LED screens. Our operating principle became, “Too much is not enough and more is more.”
“Once we moved from prints to digital it started to get fun and we ended up with a show that contains 500+1 images displayed on ever-changing screens and on what we call “wallpaper,” which is floor to ceiling grids of all the images that are in the show. There are also a selection of single prints that represent the work from the October 125th anniversary issue of the magazine.”
