Family ties, moral values, systems of law, biological species, hard disk drives - from illuminated manuscripts of medieval monasteries to today's computer graphics, designers have used tree diagrams as way of presenting complex data with an elegant yet simple visual.

Frontiers Lecture: The Cosmic Cocktail with Katherine Freese - American Museum of Natural History on May 12, 2014
Theoretical astrophysicist Katherine Freese ponders the question: What is the universe made of? The longest outstanding problem in all of modern physics, this question is the most important research topic in cosmology and particle physics today. Why? Because, it is clear, the bulk of the mass in the universe consists of a new kind of dark matter particle. Dark matter searches are three-pronged: with particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, in Geneva; in underground laboratory experiments worldwide; and with astrophysical searches of dark matter annihilation products. Currently there are claimed detections in multiple experiments - but they cannot possibly all be right. Still, excitement is building in the cosmology community that the nature of the dark matter particle may soon be revealed. (read the story...)

William Kentridge: The Refusal of Time - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through May 11, 2014
A new joint acquisition by the Met and SFMOMA, William Kentridge's five-channel video installation The Refusal of Time (2012) is a thirty-minute meditation on time and space, the complex legacies of colonialism and industry, and the artist's own intellectual life. Kentridge was born in 1955 in Johannesburg, where he still lives and works. After drama school, Kentridge was active in theater and television production in the 1970s and 1980s. By the 1990s - coinciding with the abolishment of apartheid in South Africa - Kentridge's live theater work and the stop-motion animated films he developed from charcoal drawings found an increasingly international audience.
