File Magazine / Issue #1

File Magazine is without question the coolest publication to show up on my doorstep thus far. I love large-format mags and this bi-annual publication outta the UK is roughly 12″ x 15.5″. The cover is a thick card stock and the inside pages are actually newsprint, but don’t come across cheap like you’d think. The page layouts are beautifully minimal – this thing is a real work of art. This first issue comes with a limited print by Geoff McFetridge and a DVD with over two hours of shorts films, music videos and interviews. In short, this magazine is legit!

    Interesting how you can see the printing on the other side of the page. Or is that the lighting causing that? Makes it look like newsprint, but it must be nicer than that, right?

    I think the newsprint pages compliments the sturdy cover. They have a certain quality when put together.

    Ahhh absoutely wicked. I would kill to go through all the ridiculously sick things you have gotten for free and I would also bet that you’ve made some pretty awesome purchases over the years as well. Cool coffee table books are always the best gifts and make for endless inspiration.

      i am starting to amass a little collection, i am really bad about getting things framed there a few prints i’ve received that need to be up on a wall.

  • andy

    Awesome. I didn’t realize that the format was so large until seeing it in context of you (not fat) arm :)

    I’m hoping to order a copy before they sell out.

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.
