    This screams of Simon and Garfunkel. Just looked him up, turns out Harper is Paul Simon’s son.

      i thought the exact same thing!!! totally not surprised its his son

  • Eric

    Even more interesting is that this is his first album. He was born in 1972!

    How do you go so long not making an album when your dad is Paul Simon!

      maybe that’s exactly why you wait!

    Agreed…..also. Isn’t that the girl from Donnie Darko all growns up? quite pretty.

  • Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme

    You can find yourself in a sweet gentle dream. Melancholy and nostalgia. There is definitely resemblance to Simon and Garfunkel times. Wonderful figurative language. Beloved ones are forever with you, they characterised your life, so this is never over.

    The video represents more complacent times, people had time to breath.
    Innocence, vulnerability and genuineness are reflected in this song. The close shots are great and the nature scenery is lovely. As Jena Malone- beautiful inside and out.

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.
