    It’s so refreashing to see work done, whether music or art, that tells you something about the persons background. Makes it more relatable and you can learn more about other people and cultures in addition of having something nice to look at and listen to.

    Looking forward to more work derived from peoples backstories.

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.
