A personal photo series exploring the role of facial hair in perceptions of personal gender identity.

Artist Marina Abramovic is unexpectedly reunited with an old love during her performance piece “The Artist is Present.” So beautiful.

Regan Forrest’s compelling thoughts on “the half-life of history.”

John Cleese demonstrates that the human brain is still better at creating fake English than a computer is at translating it.

Seattle is building an food forest.
