Geoff McFetridge & Huck!

Geoff McFetridge and Huck Magazine just released a great little t-shirt! You better hurry up and buy if you wanna snag one of the 75 tees. Huck Magazine also sat down with McFetridge for an interview. “It seems clear to me that all tricks are inside you just as much as all drawings are inside you. Everything else on the outside is just in the way.” – McFetridge, latest HUCK.

Hit more to see the tee and some more drawings!

    hahah thats a wicked tee & his stuff is so dope yet simple! Man that last quote is crazy. Its so true! Too bad we can’t draw with our minds and it would appear right on the paper; now that’d be sick.

    yea i love how simple and playful his drawings are, almost like a freestyle or stream of consciousness. he talks about being inspired by Egon Schiele’s contour method in the interview! Lots of great quotes in there.

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.
