    the video still isn’t as effective as the one for Whats a Girl To Do (I guess all Bat For Lashes videos will be compared to it) but I still like this video – possibly because I kinda have a thing for Natasha Kahn and I’ll take what I can get.

    oh and watch it over on youtube the HD version is HUGE

      I agree, I think she’s amazing – her performance at her concert in London was gorgeous, but this video doesn’t quite work does it? I think it’s mostly the way its shot, and the lenses chosen etc..

        i cant critique the lenses and things like that but i think there is just a lack of concept/story

        i don’t think you need a good camera/lenses for a good video. It might change a so-so movie to good, and a good movie to great. i don’t know, either way i would still kill for anything better than my 5 year old handycam.

    i have a thing with her too. wanna fight?

    natasha khan = amazing
    song + natasha khan = still amazing
    video = kinda average.

    This is an abysmal video.

    I love Bat for Lashes, we all do, but this is just poor. Sure they have squeezed a nice look out of a cheap HD camera but my god it doesn’t suit the song at all, the shots of Natasha on the bed singing are just embarrassing.

    Real shame, her videos up to this point have been amazing.

  • Henry

    It’s hard to believe that the singer Natasha Khan is 30 years old.

    She looks really good for her age.

  • sn0wcrash

    Would I sumble upon this on last.fm, I’d be probably rather enthusiastic about it. However, this video pretty much kills the song :-]

  • patsy

    another awful video from her. whats with that? her musics great, but each video makes me cringe. what creative fools does she have running around her convincing her of their vision. its all try too hard high school style.

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.
