By Tom Winter

Running. The elemental act of putting one foot in front of the other: rhythmic, effortless motion when it’s done right, grueling and difficult at times and — though this fact is lost to history — probably the first sport that humans ever competed against each other in.

Double take

Three new exhibits at MCA Denver lure the audience in for a closer look

By Amanda Moutinho

In Monique Crine’s picture “Jake,” a buff man stands alone in a pool gazing at the viewer.

The stream pools into a slowly rotating basin, where it eventually works its way to the bottom of the tun, is piped up to the top and entered back into the endless stream.
