    Minnesota! I love 1, 4, 6, and 7. But the first photo is my favorite.

    I was looking at these pictures and I was thinking “this has to be Minnesota. The way the houses are built in the middle of nowhere and the snow gave it away.”

    I was born in Minnesota and have many relatives still there. I think we might be related some how. Let me know if you would be interested in contacting a relative.

      I’m sure we are, we’re a small clan. Where was your family what part of Minnesota was you family originally from. My Proechel roots are from Janesville, MN.

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.

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.
