    the owl one is pretty weird.there’s somethin about him,i don’t know,he looks poised…

  • randy

    almost every photographer featured on this site seems occupied with landscapes, animals, or the characteristics of nature. Is that your personal taste booooom? Or are those the themes of this generation of photographers?

      i guess the things you are noticing are simply my personal taste – what else would you like to see featured (what else is there to photograph, other than people, animals, and landscapes)?

      • randy

        i enjoy your choices much, so it’s definitely not criticism. I think photography has shifted from people as the main focus, to nature as the main focus. Or is that just a stupid observation

        it’s not a stupid observation! i think there is definitely a certain style of photography i like to post here more than there is a shift away from portraits of people in general.

    That owl interaction would have changed my life.

  • Daniel

    I agree that there is a trend among the photographers posted here. However, the same can be said about the artists. There must be several artists on here that I swear could have posted more art under a different name. Artists draw inspiration off one another and it shows. Nothing bad about it at all. This is just where our generation of art is heading.

    Cool photos. I love the owl.

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.
