Small Victories / Update

I never thought I’d see the day I’d get more snail mail than email!

Do you see your envelope? You might have to take a peek over here, here, here, here, or here.

    I should clarify that the photos are not of one pile getting bigger, they are all completely different piles of envelopes.

    Looks like a heap’er.

    Good luck with the trip, and show. I didn’t get a chance to take any photos this time around, hopefully there are more small victory contests/ shows/ goodness of similar content sooner than later. But if it’s later, that’s alright too. It’ll mean better camera gear, and getting a better game down in photography.

    Have a good one.

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.
