    Eight years ago, Alex and I were classmates in Rome. Six years ago, we were neighbours in Brooklyn. Unfortunately don’t see much of him these days, but seems he’s always up to a dozen or so new and interesting things, and is always an inspiration. Nice to see him get some Booooooom love.

    Really beautiful. I love the technique, but most of I love the theme and the evidence of past human activity, but the lack of actual humans. Call me sociopathic, but to me these look like really beautiful places. I think the evidence of what (was) todays chaotic western consumerist culture contrasted with the lack of movement after that culture has disappeared makes these pieces seem so much more peaceful, and our existence in the here and now seem so much noisier and aggressive. Really good stuff!

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.
