Intervelometer

Intervelometer, by Team DAK (Deniz Merdanogullari, Aparna Kapur and Kunal Sen) won ‘Best Picture’ at the 2nd Annual Trick 17 Stop Motion Animation Contest where 18 teams had 52 hours to make a 1-3 minute film. I also have to mention that they are recent graduates of Emily Carr University, because I went there too!

    what’s cool is that at around 1:25 when the horse animation touches the Science World (or Telus world, whatever they call it now) it looks like it actually lights up! ..Kind of like a Billy Jean Michael JAckson effect…

    Emily Carr students have done it again.

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.
