World’s major cities as they would appear at night without light pollution from the series Villes Enteintes aka Darkened Cities by French photographer Thierry Cohen
Cohen’s method is original and precise and harkens back to the methodologies employed by early 19th century photographers like Gustave Le Grey. He photographs the world’s major cities, seeking out views that resonate for him and noting the precise time, angle, and latitude and longitude of his exposure. As the world rotates around its axis the stars that would have been visible above a particular city move to deserts, plains, and other places free of light pollution. By noting the precise latitude and angle of his cityscape, Cohen is able to track the earth’s rotation to places of atmospheric clarity like the Mojave, the Sahara, and the Atacama desert. There he sets up his camera to record what is lost to modern urban dwellers. (source)

Functioning bookshelves titled Antiquity, replica of Venus d’Arles and mahogany wood with brass elements, from the series Functional Sculpture / Sculptural Furniture by New York based designer /artist Sebastian Errazuriz.
The original Venus d’Arles was a copy of the Aphrodite of Thespiae by Praxiteles, gift from Julius Caesar to the city of Arles, lost until unearthed in 17th century Versailles. Still today, the Louvre questions whether to place the work in Antiquities or its 17th Century galleries. She languishes in the storeroom, forever invisible (source)
