Growing chaos

It turns out that if you leave them alone long enough, garden plants are happy to do their own thing. This week, Ari LeVaux explores the aesthetic, philosophical and biological joys of the bolted garden in “Going to seed.”

Webgame Wednesday on Thursday: Flooded Village

Dig a trench from the river to water the plants and float the boats. Don't drown the people. Sounds simple enough, but the grid-based puzzler Flooded Village throws enough twists and turns at you to keep the old think-box working overtime. Further impediments (like ice) rear their ugly heads, forcing you to make more convoluted excavations in the landscape. What are you waiting for? Get digging!

More Exciting Than Regular Seeds

Southern California artist Martin Facey is fascinated by life and the forces that come together to create it: light, time, humidity, heat. In his new series of paintings, Pluck, he explores the fragility and interconnectedness of life, primarily through the image of the seed. And these are some big kernels. Facey used paint, fiberglass, fabric and other materials to construct the works that fill Bright Rain Gallery. A professor of art and art history at UNM for 20 years, Facey has a piece in the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History's collection and three in the permanent collection of the University of New Mexico Museum. See the seeds revealed while pecking at hors d'oeuvres on Saturday from 4 to 8 p.m.
