The joy of the Internet is also its drawback: there is simply too much information, much of it excellent, for the mind to absorb. I hope that in making these suggestions for your web surfing I have singled out some of the best.

A number of you have written expressing your feelings about "No More War". I thought you might like to hear Kris Kristofferson's rendition of "Breakthrough" in a concert at the Boulder Theater in 1989. Note: it was only after listening to this, sent by DR, that I realized Kristofferson's song included the words "no more wars".

Imagine the joy of discovering an unknown language in a corner of Brazil. Dan Everett, who is dean of arts and sciences at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts, has just published a book about his findings, "Language: The Cultural Tool", to be followed by a television documentary.

A private collection of photographs owned by Frida Kahlo is being shown at artisphere in Arlington, Virginia. First released to the public in 2007, this is their first showing in the United States.

The exterior of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D. C. has been turned into a giant multimedia screen by artist Doug Aitken. Seen on all sides of the building, the video spectacular was commissioned after Aitken won the International Prize at the Venice Biennale. Keep in mind that the Hirshhorn looks like a sphere on stilts, so the building itself becomes part of the project.

If you can't get to the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, at least visit their site. The current exhibition, titled "Maharaja: "The Splendor of India's Royal Courts", is glorious. You can purchase the catalogue at the Museum Store or watch the free multimedia tour through iTunes. You can also see the contemporary art by Sanjay Patel and watch an interview with him on Spark.

David Hockney's new landscape paintings are being shown at the Royal Academy of Arts. Be sure to click on the slide show for an interview with Hockney.

We don't usually think of chicken wire as a sculptural material, but artist Derek Kinzett has chosen this medium to produce life-sized sculpture. His six-feet tall pieces are sprayed with zinc to prevent rusting. Most people are surprised that you can look through the sculptures and see the landscape around them.

Every so often a designer comes to my attention with a line of clothes too imaginative to overlook. I think Selma Karaca falls into that category. Perhaps not the outfits you'd wear to the grocery store, but certainly the stuff of fanciful dreams and a big improvement over some of the outfits on the Red Carpet.

Casey Reas is an artist, Professor, and developer of open-source software. Watch him explain how he produces fascinating images by using code. It's called The Creators Project, crossing the boundary between software and the natural world.

Imagine a bronze sculpture that uses an ironing board for legs, a toilet seat for the body, and a yellow straw sunhat. Such was a piece created late in life by Joan Miro as described by the Financial Times. Miro wanted his sculptures placed "outside, where they might be confused with living things". As always, Miro added a marvelous breath of fresh humor to whatever he tackled.

I have omitted images this month and used only links, only partially due to the current brouhaha over copyrights. Give me your feedback on your preference.
