1 AM Gallery recently hosted its premier photo exhibition, "Most Finished," featuring the works of Ken Goto, Orly Locquiao, Dylan Maddux and Abe Menor. While each collection merges together with their street-inspired style, each artist has his own perspective and focus on urban culture.

Orly Locquiao, highlighted photographer and tattoo artist of HBTat2, showcases a collection of facial and body tat portraits and site-specific shots from Indonesia. He states, "The most prominent way of understanding the social and urban landscape, wherever you are, is by looking at the people in them."

“Most Finished” will be up until April 15th. Whether it’s Locquiao’s exotic getaway pics, Goto’s skate action shots, Menor’s thug life money and gun poses, or even Maddux’s straight up glossy ass booty close-ups you’re looking for, this exhibit caters to all. Cheers.

On a small hill surrounded by boggy muskeg in the Tanana River Valley, prehistoric skin scrapers made of schist, polished slate tools and glass beads were uncovered in the last week. Based on the design of the tools and the way the animals were butchered, it appears to be an Athabascan campsite from the turn of the 20th century. "These are very typical Athabascan tools. But you usually think of polished stone tools with the Eskimo area, not in the Interior, so it's very interesting," says Chuck Holmes, the archaeologist who first discovered the site several decades ago. He's leading a team of 10 graduate students and volunteers at the excavation through June. Swan Point is just north of Delta Junction. You can see the Alaska Range to the south, the Yukon-Tanana Uplands to the north, and Donnelly Dome just across the valley. Fourteen thousand years ago, long before the boreal forest of today, the views were even better. "It was an open grassland [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-New-York-Yankees-25-Mark-Texeiru-Blue-Jerseys-17/]2009 All Star New York Yankees 25 Mark Texeiru Blue Jerseys[/url] and mammoths, horse and bison were roaming around. You would have almost a 360-degree vantage to see game coming and going. [url=24 Robinson Cano Red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] So this is a really good spot." That's why many different cultures made the site their home over millennia. Swan Point goes back more than 14,000 years. "It's the oldest, well-documented age we have for any humans in [url=All Star New York Yankees 25 Mark Texeiru Blue Jerseys[/url] Alaska," Holmes says. "It's older than the oldest established culture in the Lower 48, known as the Clovis culture." He discovered the site in 1993 while working for the Office of History and Archaeology, part of the Alaska [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-42-Mariano-Rivera-red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-68/]Yankees 42 Mariano Rivera red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] Department of Natural Resources. It was the first link between the Dyuktai culture of Siberia and Alaska. "In that period the sea level was lower and there was a land bridge, Beringia, connecting Alaska with Siberia. Alaska was actually more a part of Siberia than the Lower 48," Holmes says. That's because the Canadian ice shield -- which existed until around 13,000 years ago -- blocked the migration of animals and people between Alaska and the Lower 48. How did they make the connection between the two groups? A very special type of stone tool technology called microblade. The Dyuktai people in Siberia were using identical hunting technology during the same time period. "Think of a single-edge razor blade, long and narrow and sharp as heck on both edges," Holmes says. About an inch long, they were made of rocks like chert, obsidian and basalt and could be used to make precise cuts like an X-Acto knife. These blades were inset into a projectile point made of ivory, bone or antler, similar to sticking razor blades into slots on a flat pencil. They were constructed as long darts and flung from an atlatal, which extended the throwing arm of the hunter like a lacrosse stick. "It would make a very wicked deadly weapon." Yet it matches no culture in the Lower 48, suggesting the Dyuktai technology never made it down south. Where the oldest cultures in the Lower 48 came from is still hotly debated. Swan Point also holds a trove of information on wooly mammoths, helping confirm that people overlapped with the hairy elephant-like beasts. "The site is almost like an ivory workshop, where people are taking the ivory tusks and breaking them up and utilizing them." While many ivory tools had been found in Alaska, there was no evidence that people hunted mammoths --f or example, bones with an arrow tip sticking out. So some archaeologists thought that humans had simply scavenged ivory from cutbanks thousands of years later. Radiocarbon dating of ivory and teeth from Swan Point showed otherwise. "It became perfectly clear that people and mammoths were coexisting. The people were killing the animals using this microblade stone tool technology." Now they are digging their way toward the past, uncovering different cultures as they move down through the soil sediments. This summer, the group is also investigating 800-year-old hearths discovered last season that contain stone tools as well as burned, white bone fragments. "We suspect this was a method of rendering the grease out of them, by boiling them in water and skimming off the grease." Swan Point is not only the oldest record of humans in Alaska -- it's also very intact. "A lot of sites are disturbed by construction. This site was totally undisturbed. It was found in a test pit by archaeologists." Holmes will begin a comprehensive report on Swan Point after this season. Molly Rettig is a science writer who currently works in communications at the Cold Climate Housing Research Center in Fairbanks.
