Remake of 1982 World Cup

In honour of the World Cup, I present you with the greatest video on the entire internet! “Refait” is a remake of the 1982 World Cup match between France and Germany. Every detail of the fifteen last minutes of the match was painstakingly reconstructed by Pied La Biche. The sheer pointlessness of it all is hilarious. Enjoy.

    shots like the one at 1:15 with all the people passing through the frame are so well done

    it must be a french thing.
    P&P, a french blog run by two guys, recently did a hilarious remake of fashion blogger garance doré’s “a month in fashion” video.

    you really need to watch them separately, at the same time, then separately again, to see all of the hilarious substitutions. (they use a banana to replace a new york taxi cab)

    it’s great, had they done this with footage of unsuspecting strangers, would’ve been more entertaining for me. = )

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.
