Now Hear This, Vol. III

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Sun Jul 13 2014 5:06 PM ]

Consumers of my dancing-about-architecture reportage are probably aware of my frequent use of the adjectival "blackety-black." It's really just an overly precious synonym for: atramentous, ebony, jet, obsidian, onyx, pitch, slate, sloe and the like. But thanks to British scientists at Surrey NanoSystems, there's now an honest-to-goodness blackety-black. It's called Vantablack (or super black), and it's record-breaking darkness absorbs all but .035 percent of light. It's so damn black that the human eye has difficulty discerning its dimensions. Like a freaking black hole. Its primary intended applications are terrestrial, space and air-borne optical instrumentation. But now hear this: The Little Black Dress will never be the same.

Culture Shock

By Lisa Barrow

Ipso facto X-Acto

Any way you slice it, nothing’s quite like paper art. Traditional papel picado is a cheerful, humble Mexican papercraft often used to adorn and embellish public spaces. But ¡Papel! Pico, Rico y Chico, opening at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) on Friday, June 20, at 6pm, proves the form’s wondrous flexibility.
