Howie Woo

My sister’s friend Andrea spotted some amazing yarnbombing (knit graffiti) by Howie Woo, at the Davie Village community garden! It’s literally raining cats and dogs out here!

    Wow, thanks so much for featuring the Cat & Dog Raindrops! I haven’t been downtown lately, so it’s a treat to see from your first photo that they’re still hangin’ in/up there :)

    I hope they bring smiles to Vancouverites & to our visiting guests! Thanks again :)

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.
