Since winning the 2008 Archibald Prize, Del Kathryn Barton has been one of the most rapidly rising stars in the Australian contemporary art world. Barton's richly colourful and hallucinogenic works offer a complex, often disorienting meditation upon the nature of reality. Barton is a woman on a crusade, to express herself as honestly as she can in her work - a strange and magical world of fecund landscapes populated by hermaphrodites and animal familiars.

In Indonesia, the tobacco industry is virtually unregulated. Over two-thirds of all men are smokers and it's commonplace for children as young as six to take up the habit. Investigating this phenomenon in Malang, VICE visits a clinic that promises cures to a plethora of modern ailments through tobacco and smoking. Heroin is the most addictive drug on earth, and some people will do anything to kick the habit. Enter Ibogaine, a drug made out of the African iboga root, whose intense, hallucinogenic properties make it a Type-A felony drug. But many swear it's the most effective way to kick heroin addiction, especially when combined with a ritual that involves face paint and chanting.

Since the US occupation of Afghanistan, heroin production in the region has skyrocketed, making the country the number-one producer in the world by a large margin. Suroosh Alvi takes a rare look inside neighbouring Iran to meet the suffering heroin addicts, and to see how the country is coping with the illegal drug trade. With the polar ice caps shrinking due to global warming, new trade routes are being exposed, along with billions of dollars' worth of natural-resource reserves. This is prime real estate and the five nations bordering the Arctic are readying themselves to fight for it. David Choe heads north to witness NATO forces participating in the largest polar military exercise in history. The problem is that there's one non-NATO country that already considers itself rightful owner of the region: Russia.
