    WOW! These are sooooo brilliant, what simple incredibly, ridiculously well executed idea! I really, really, really love the color/scene in the third one. SIIIIIGH ITS SO AMAZING!!!

    It is a very simple concept yet very effective. I am surprised that it has never been done before. It’s not like you need the software we have today or anything.

    It’s funny how all those puzzles have the exact same tile pattern…

    I guess it makes sense if they’re all from the same company.

      yea that’s what it says on the website – as long as the puzzles are from the same brand they can be interchanged, you can see on the edges they don’t perfectly line up too

    I just can’t get enough of art made of puzzles, but this dude is genius! I wonder how much time it takes to make one of these? The only person I’ve ever seen do something similar to this is Sebastian Wahl.

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.
