Wall-E Wood.

This beautifully crafted wood version of Wall-E is just incredible. I believe a company called Morpheus produced it but I’m not sure if they had the rights as information about the project and images have been taken off the net. I never saw the movie, is it worth seeing?

    yeah it’s a good movie. it makes a pretty good silent film until the fat people show up. other than that, for an animated film to display emotion from robots, it’s pretty effin cool.

    I agree,
    I had to see with my little brother, and I’m happy I was forced.
    It’s pretty adorable.

    The movie is well worth the time, it really isn’t until you get to the part in the movie where the people come into the scene that you notice how much emotion and expression is shown in the robots. the whole 20% of what we say comes from our mouth and 80% is from body language really comes through in this movie. There are also hidden messages in the movie about our society that each person can take from the movie. needless to say, as a woodworker this WAll-E is unbeleivable craftsmanship, nice find.

    2nd that Brock, it’s incredible how Pixar put all that emotion in the body language of the characters. I just saw it a couple of days ago and it is really worth watching. Amazing craftmanship on the wood-e ;D

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.
