NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft has captured the first flash of sunlight reflected off a lake on Saturn’s moon Titan, confirming the presence of liquid on the part of the moon dotted with many large, lake-shaped basins. The glint off a mirror-like surface is known as a specular reflection.
This kind of glint was detected by the visual and infrared mapping spectrometer (VIMS) on NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on July 8, 2009. It confirmed the presence of liquid in the moon’s northern hemisphere, where lakes are more numerous and larger than those in the southern hemisphere.
The photographs of Nicholas Hughes play with light and seeing at the extreme ends of lightness and darkness. In his earlier work, his large white on white on white photographs were like whispers of tone and nuance that rewarded the viewer when your eyes could finally detect the delicacy and wonder and richness of what was there with such subtlety.

Nazroo, a mahout (elephant driver), poses for a portrait while taking his elephant, Rajan, out for a swim in front of Radha Nagar Beach in Havelock, Andaman Islands. Rajan is one of the few elephants in Havelock that can swim, so when he is not dragging timber in the forest he is used as a tourist attraction. The relationship between the mahout and his elephant usually lasts for their entire lives, creating an extremely strong tie between the animal and the human being. (Photo and caption by Cesare Naldi)

Vince Lauro won National Geographic Traveler’s Great Outdoors Photo Contest with this awesome photo of the Caribbean swimming pig.
As the first mate on a 118-foot motor yacht, Vince Lauro has the opportunity to continuously travel across the Caribbean. This photograph was taken near a small key famous for the “swimming pigs.” A colony of pigs lives on the key, and they often swim near visiting boats. To capture this clear image Lauro said, “I had to lure this pig into an undisturbed area with its favourite food: fresh watermelon.”
Here’s an amazing photo by Richard Heeks of a soap bubble bursting found on Neotorama;
The lighting of this shot is natural – sunlight through cloud. The Nikon D90 is great for giving clear images at high ISO (here ISO 800); making this shot possible.
N.B. This is a real photo of a soap bubble bursting. I’ve made slight edits to raise colour and light, but this is just to add some punch. This is not a Photoshop creation!
The MANIFEST HOPE: DC Gallery is an art exhibition produced by EMG. It celebrates that role and shines a spotlight on artists who use their voices to amplify and motivate the grassroots movement that carried President-Elect Barack Obama to victory.
American artist Tierney Gearon will be showing a series of large-scale photography at Phillips de Pury auction house employing a new process for the artist. Each photograph, contrived through the classic mechanism of double exposure in camera, has been composed by carefully combining two of the artist’s images whose compositions and themes act as counterpoints to each other: interior space and wilderness; youth and old age; solitude and companionship. The result is a powerful exploration of psychological terrain.
This campaign is realized by Publicis, Malaysia to give the impression that someone actually walked through a gigantic piece of paper and caused it to tear. Several of these standees were then placed at strategic locations to demonstrate to passers-by that what’s real to their eyes is actually a reproduction using HP Advanced Photo Paper.
A FaceBook group has started a new amazing trend called “Sleeveface”. The concept is pretty simple: take a picture of yourself holding a vinyl album cover in front of your face and post it on the web for everyone to see. The result is always funny and very artistic. That made me want to dust off my old vinyls and give them a new life. So if your turntable is broken, you know what’s left to do.
Mariko Mori is a Japanese video and photographic artist . She worked briefly as a fashion model in the late 1980s.The artist graduated from the Bunka Fashion College “Tokyo” in 1988. Later that year, feeling restrained by the Japanese ethic of uniformity, she moved to London attending the Byam Shaw School of Art (1988-89), and Chelsea College of Art, London (1989-92). Since embarking on an Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1992-93), Mariko continues to work and live there.
Now, Mori has a new installation in New York. Called “Wave UFO”, the work transcends the pop iconography of her earlier efforts and offers an immersive experience that brings together architecture, real-time computer graphics, brainwave technology, sound, and state-of-the-art engineering to create a profound interactive experience. Anyone interested in experience design, and the relationship between art, technology and the future should see it.
