MSTRKRFT make bad music good.

Looking for just the right thing to throw into your cd player onto your ipod to please all the hipsters coming to your BBQ? I present you a collection of remixes by the Canadian duo known as MSTRKRFT. Both dudes were associated in one way or another with the criminally slept-on band, Death From Above 1979 (Jesse was the bassist and Alex produced their second album). I don’t know how they didn’t get more popular… How many bands do you know only have a drummer and a bassist AND the drummer is the lead singer??? BAD ASS.

It is hard to deny their ability to take a mediocre, sometimes downright terrible, song and turn it into a dancefloor hammer. Enjoy the remixes and bonus videos after the jump!

MSTRKRFT talk a bit about how they remix a song (give it a chance, they are stoned so it starts getting good halfway through):

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
