Wild in the streets

Is Vancouver the best place to live in the entire universe? Yes. Yes it is. Emerica. Wild in the Streets. Vancouver BC. 1:26 mark of this video makes me smile. I love this city. What up Cyrus!

Bob K posted this over at Vancouverisawesome.com and he graciously added me to their blogroll so I can plug the Booooooom projects! Stay tuned, the next project is about to launch!

Ps – The great little video was put together by Mike McKinlay – see more of his work here.

    I wonder how accurate of a barometer this video is of Vancouver’s ‘Cultural’ strength. A trip down would do the trick, best if done alone.

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.
