Bless You!

Sneeze Magazine is about to change the magazine game – not overnight, mind you – slowly – they want to “grow with you, city by city, issue by issue”. So what makes them special? Their distribution method for starters – you won’t be able to grab this off your favourite shop’s shelf, Sneeze is aiming to land a “flagship” news box in the busiest spot of your city. That’s it. One box. How cool is that?

If you live in Vancouver you’ll find this little guy at the corner of Water & Abbot Street. New York’s got a “flagship” at Lafayette & Prince Street. Los Angeles location is coming.

Another great thing about Sneeze is that they figured out how to be eco-friendly (less binding) and still be larger – just increase the format size! Pages can be hung in your apartment like posters! If you live in Vancouver or New York make sure you head over to their “stores” or throw them an email I believe you’ll be able to get the issues online as well!

Head on over to their website for more info: sneezemag.com

Thanks for the heads up, Michelle!

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.
