Dirk Sijmons, curator of IABR–2014–URBAN BY NATURE–: “If we want to address the real and oppressive issues of the urban planet of the twenty-first century, a moralistic message that amounts to saying that we humans have gone too far and therefore have to reverse course is of little use. There is no going back. Welcome to the Anthropocene!”

(yes this is real)
Anyone who tells you that you need a yard to get your garden on is a LIAR.
- old wooden board (I used a piece of painted wood I found by a torn down home)
- mason jars
- pipe clamps
- triangle ring hangers
- stainless hanging wire
- picture hanger
- chalkboard paint & chalk
- hammer, nails and screwdriver
- Space mason jars evenly on wooden board, and mark placement with a pencil in order to design and measure around.
- Tape off rectangles on board, and paint with chalkboard paint as pictured above. This way, you can switch out herbs and change their labels accordingly.
- Paint pipe clamps gold, and secure to wooden board by hammering a nail through the small holes in the pipe clamp.
- On back of board, nail in ring hangers and tie on hanging wire.
- Plant herbs in mason jars.
- Place mason jars into pipe clamps and tighten with a screwdriver.
- Nail picture hanger into the wall, and hang your herb display!

Occult Chemistry: Atomic Imaging Through the Third Eye
At the turn of the 19th century before the advent of atomic microscopy, a group of theosophists collectively known as “occult chemists” purported to divine the structure of chemical elements through clairvoyant observation. Assisted by the “microscopic vision of the third eye,” the practicioners, led by Annie Besant, C.W. Leadbeater and Curuppumullage Jinarajadasa, carried out a series of observations between 1895 and 1933. The results were published in the lengthily-titled book Occult Chemistry: Investigations by Clairvoyant Magnification into the Structure of the Atoms of the Periodic Table and Some Compounds. Among other “discoveries” was the fundamental particle of the universe, dubbed the Anu after the Sanskrit word for “atoms.” Bearing a notable resemblance to the human heart, the Anu appeared to be composed of vibrating coils swirling in a vortex of energy.
