Murmur, a fantastic series of photographs by Richard Barnes.

I once captured a similar flock of birds flying above a hotel near my house with my video camera. They swarmed around and formed a perfect circle, and then broke off into two separate ghost-like shapes revolving around each other. Eventually they all landed in one really small tree. It was amazing. I found that tape earlier this year, and half of what I just described had been taped over.

    There are starlings that do that over the Albert Bridge here in Belfast, and it is one of the most aw-inspiring and unsettling sights. I wouldn’t want to be under them for all of the bird poop! Though some say a bird pooping on you is good luck.

    I wish that video you described still existed in its entirety :( Anyway these are really beautiful photographs. Black and white was a good choice.

    Imagine 2 massive abandoned grain elevators in no-mans land Sask. and imagine them being occupied by thousands of sparrows! Camping between them was a phenomenal experience.

    more than i would have liked to. As long as you wear a hat and don’t stare into the sky with your mouth open, you are good.

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.
