    mind-bending. The textures are incredible. There’s something about the fake skeletons created with another natural material.

    damn, you posted this before my post on his work went up! But I have many more pictures, (as well as more information about his work) of his amazing wood sculptures here:

    I love the last skull, it’s really nice

  • Samara

    The two skeletons holding hands is inspiring. To see the love between them that lasts after death, it’s really touching.

  • Samara

    The two skeletons holding hands is really inspiring. Just to see the love and/or partnership between two people, even after life, is very moving.

    The first is my favorite! This is really great work!

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto


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


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.
