Thanks!

Thank you to all of you who sent emails just to say hello over the holidays! I am doing my best to get through them all! It’s exciting to see the readership of this site really expanding in unexpected directions. Hush Puppies for example, found out that I love slippers and moccasins and kindly sent me a nice pair! Cheers you guys!

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.

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels).

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.
