July 6 - 27, Writ and Vision is pleased to present In the high noon of the heavenly garden , an installation of new works by New York-based artist Samuel Evensen. The exhibition consists of an immersive, floor-to-ceiling frieze of the Eden narrative in Genesis drawn in oil pastel on paper and covering the entire wall space of the gallery—one continuous drawing 8 x 54 feet and another 9 x 20 feet. Hung directly on top of this expansive frieze is a series of small nudes painted in oil from observation. This juxtaposition reflects on the force of the Eden mythology and how that mythology frames cultural and personal conceptions of the body. Inspired by an operatic, Gesamtkunstwerk aesthetic, the frieze is enveloping and depicts chronological scenes from the Genesis narrative along with excerpts of poetry inspired by Genesis from Lucille Clifton, Emily Dickinson, Samuel Menashe, and others. The visual language is vibrant, chromatic, maximalist, and highly sensorial. Deity is represented by both male and female bodies that are, in every case, laboring, grounded, meek—literally gardeners, a reflection on how the Hebrews in the fifth century BCE likely conceived the original text.

Break any bone in the human body, and the body can repair the tissue and fix the damage. Yet tooth enamel — the strongest tissue in the human body — cannot repair itself. Still, our teeth last a lifetime. How does it prevent catastrophic failure? In new research published Sept. PIC mapping, which measures biomineral crystal orientations and assigns different colors to different rotation angles, reveals that the crystals in tooth enamel are not perfectly aligned.

Tooth enamel is organized in micron-length rods made up of long, skinny crystals of hydroxyapatite.

Well, let's be honest, when you recently had to say "Bye Boy" to the guy that you've been dating because he told you he doesn't believe in monogamy Valentine's Day isn't something that you really look forward to. But in an attempt to not drown in my own self absorbed bull shit, I figured I would would turn this V-Day into my own little "Treat Yo Self" day! I had to go with the pink wig. I mean it was Valentine's Day. I'm still kinda cheesy like that. Next, what is a Tuesday without tacos.
