      cool i’ve never seen his stuff before – i guess we have another “Keith Schofield thing” where a contemporary artist hasn’t been given credit for obvious reference in a video

        they aren’t the only ones to have used this trick though.

        Yeah I don’t think you can accuse them of ripping off what is essentially a pretty basic visual trick. It’s not exactly a skateboard on a pile of cheeseburgers.

        Nice video anyway – reminds me a bit of Spike Jonze’s vids from the 90s.

    Nobody makes a better, more creative, small-budget vid than the NNB

    Jeff, DSK, you should check out the rest of their videos. This is just one of their many cool vids.

    To be honest, I already had this idea a long, long time ago, before these Naive New Bastards – oh sorry, Beaters – and Romain Laurent were even born. I simply just never knew how to do it… Can anyone please explain me how this magic trick works? it’s really fucking depressing to still be in the dark. Many thanks.

      i would assume they are harnesses – it seems pretty obvious that it is a harness that is removed in post-production especially in the palm tree shots.

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.
