$200 Burger

(Apologies in advance to all my vegetarian reader out there) Introducing Burger King’s $200 burger! Yes, you read that correctly, BURGER KING has a $200 burger!

“Wagyu beef, white truffles, pata negra ham slices, cristal onion straws, Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt, organic white wine and shallot-infused mayonnaise all served up on an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun.”

Pfff What? No Tyrannosaurus egg on there?

This work of art will be on sale once per week in London and there is a happy ending to the story – proceeds go to the Help a London Child charity. You could always save yourself the heart-attack and just donate $200 straight to the charity but that’s just my craaaaazy opinion.

This burger does not win the biggest burger award though… Who here is a fan of In & Out? You know the double-double? The 4×4 animal style? The mythical 8 by 8. You know what I’m sayin’? I know a girl who even attempted a 16 patty burger. But my friends that is nothing… what I am about to show you will change your life…

And then there’s…

Hahahaha life-changing!

$200 Burger story found over at Luxist. (Thanks Kyle)

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.
