  • The DALI Lab has just won an excellence in architecture design award in the "Small Building/Small Firm" category from AIANH. Congratulations!

    From the award:

    The open and fluid design reflects DALI’s innovative, high energy culture and process. Using Salvador Dali’s home, art, and persona (especially his mustache) as a source of inspiration, Studio Nexus developed a state-of-the-art lab that is creative and playful. With an industrial “start-up” sensibility, the...

  • “What is truth?” asked Pontius Pilate at the trial of Jesus Christ. You’d think that in the past two millennia we’d have gotten better at knowing, but technology is a two-edged sword in this respect. “The forensics guy and the forger share similar skillsets,” says Hany Farid, a professor of computer science at Dartmouth College who is one of the foremost experts on unraveling the digital mazes constructed to conceal or alter images and sound. And tools of the trade that once belonged to the...
