    the koi fish is perfect, especially how the eye and the ridge of its face is detailed by the dollar’s design. ..gnarly.

    I recall having to make a swan in Design I, I never completed it out of frustration and not caring. To see this blows my mind.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera


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.
