    So… I’ve seen it all. Well illustrated though.

    hmmm! ( love it when art makes me ‘hmmm’!) and i love the small details like the scar/mark on the animals faces in the first two and the thumb extended over the insect’s face in the third drawing. makes it personal somehow.

    Umm wow, not really sure what to say about these, except that these give me some kind of gut reaction that I just can’t classify.

  • Joel

    What is this I don’t even.

    Seriously though, it’s kind of cool in a “feel-slightly-dirty-looking-at-it” kind of way.

  • Pamela

    Haha I love them! I was a bit wierded out at first but now I am very intrigued.

    Cool drawings. Do you know if these are on toned paper, or just photoshopped after the fact?

  • http://www.constant-cravings.com Leigh

    oh man! I’ve been looking to find who this artist is for forever! I saw it on someone’s facebook page, but all we could find on the internets was some Christian zealot talking shish about the content. haha. yay! I love this.

    the link above is to my buddy’s work. his illustration is fully stippled, pen + ink. he did this illustration of himself making out with a giraffe back in 07/08. it’s really strange cause its the SAME EXACT IDEA.

    makes me wonder if we all have the same random dreams. twilight zone man.

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.
