Guity Novin writes on "How I became a Transpressionist" : I
did my undergraduate studies during the late 60s. In those days there predominated
in academia a definite penchant for modern and post modern arts. My professors
were mostly young Ph. Ds from Europe and North America who admired, and
encouraged students to admire, artists like Kandinski, Miro, Mondrian and
later on Andy Warhole among others.

After looking around the FARK web site, we still have no idea what FARK
means. We do know, however, that this site's collection of humor news and
links is hard to beat. The articles are classified as "stupid,"
"silly," "scary," etc., for easy browsing. You can submit
stories for inclusion and comment on the bizarre articles that make it onto
the site. You'll be surprised to learn how many people have an opinion on
square fruit for sale in Japan or a comment on roaming toilets in the Cambodian
capital of Phnom Penh.. -- Yahoo review

Capturing the complexity of landscape photography, this site features
90 works from 39 artists, ranging from beautiful panoramas and stark valleys
to pipelines and nuclear-waste sites. Richard Misrach's "Bomb, Destroyed
Vehicle and Lone Rock" is a study of color and space, while Joe Maloney's
"Dark Eddy, Delaware River" provides a sense of calm. Unlike their
early 20th-century predecessors, today's photographers no longer have the
luxury of working with an unspoiled wilderness. This site presents a fascinating
look at contemporary artists and the present-day realities facing them..

This new magazine picks up where others leave off, literally. If you've
ever picked up a note, a picture, or an object that someone else discarded
or left behind, you should share your story with Found. Browse through
photos or notes that were once important but lost for some reason. It provides
a low-grade voyeuristic thrill that curious people can't get enough of.
So go forth and find things, and when you do, tell the people at Found.

In June of last year, scientists announced they had mapped the human
genome, the blueprint for human life, a discovery that offers limitless
potential for scientists. In the Our Genetic Identity section of the site,
we learned that we share 99.9% of our genes with each other, 98% of our
genes with chimpanzees, and 90% with mice. This genomic revolution raises
many questions about how to use this new-found knowledge, and this site
provides an insightful look at the billions of pairs of A's and T's, and
G's and C's that are the fundamentals of life. -- Yahoo review
Have you heard of the Lomo? It's the swanky lil' Russian camera that's
found its way into the hands of cool photography cats around the world.
One cat in particular, Eugene Kuo, traipsed around South East Asia in 2000
snapping whatever piqued his interest. What's neat about the Lomo is that
it's completely self-contained and doesn't require a flash. The result of
Eugene's travels are vivid photojournalistic vignettes captured with a natural
color saturation not even the best designers can achieve in Photoshop. In
an age of new-fangled digital cameras and cumbersome professional photography
equipment, SEAEK makes a good argument for sleek Russian minimalism. --
