At first glance, you see a beautiful landscape in the style of a traditional Chinese painting, but look closer. You'll see that artist Yao Lu used bits and pieces of trash heaps and landfills covered with green nettings to simulate verdant mountains.
There's probably an environmental message there somewhere, but first, let's marvel at Yao Lu's landfill landscapes art, on display at the Bruce Silverstein gallery:

This past week, I noticed that daylight came early enough that I could climb the stairs without turning on a light when waking up the kids. That won't be the case next week, because Daylight Saving Time starts tomorrow at 2AM in the United States (except for Arizona, Hawaii, and some territories). Spring forward, fall back -so remember to set your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed tonight. Next week, it may be hard to get up because your body knows it's an hour earlier than the clock says, but we'll get used to it. Eventually. Meanwhile, let's catch up on what happened here at Neatorama since last weekend.
Well, that's certainly good for a t-shirt! See the answers to all the mystery items at the What Is It Blog.
Usability tip of the week: Have you tried the search box at the top right of the page? I believe it may be the best internal search engine we've ever had here. If you don't recall the name of a particular post, just a word or two that's in it will find it. Still, your results may have a long list, look at the bottom of the results list and see if there's a "more search results" link. If you're looking for posts on a certain subject, you'll be surprised at how much neat material from our archives will come up! The search box is in the same place at the Neatoshop, where the results all come up with pictures!
Write yourself a note to set your clocks an hour forward tonight, and check back every day with us here at Neatorama. Have a great week!
