Here’s an email from Steph Grant (sent with this photo):

Cops got called last night… the cops laughed, took pictures with us and we served them pumpkin pie. they said they hadn’t seen anything like this and we explained why we were doing it. It was great… we are going to do this more often, next time… hammocks IN the fort!

Thanks!!

    Just sent my fortress of Geektitude in!

    Would be so cool if there was a never ending chain of photos of everybody’s fort.

    One unified giant walled fortress, even greater than the Wall of China!

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.
