Mikel Uribetxeberria

Animalia by Mikel Uribetxeberria. Kinda reminds me of that Domesticated series by Amy Stein.

    Looks very similar to Kimberly Witham’s Deertown series:


    Kimberly and Mikel both Photoshop wildlife images into the domestic scenes.

    i like this in some ways. i wish the colors were a little warmer, i think that change would make them “est super cool”.

    and the amy stein reference is awesome, she was my friends teaches last semester.

    Interesting stuff Mikel.

    Some of the comments here are pretty slack though…imho. I personally prefer the Doug Aitken piece but I don’t see why it warrants such an attack. Mikel’s work is of a high standard and I for one know that I often complete ideas that I then see elsewhere…benefit of the doubt maybe?

    I agree these are alot like Doug Aitken’s stuff.
    He’s very good, but not so much like Kimberly Witham.
    The Photoshop job is quite badly executed.

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto


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


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.
