    It’s interesting how all of the carts are facing the same way… Perhaps that’s part of the narrative. Thoughts?

    I think the direction of the carts serves more for a constant to the variable of the contents of them. I definitely think there’s a certain narrative, but my initial hunch was one of an intrigue in objects or maybe a political stance on consumerism. I immediately thought of the homeless and why they choose the objects they do (utility vs. relics).

    You guys don’t know what you’re talking about. These pieces satirize the people that admire them (specifically those willing to pay for them or those that want them in their gallery). Get out of your own little world and go out on the streets of any major city and you’ll see REAL carts like this. Pushed by REAL people that are too busy trying to survive to care about art.

      Dude, these are up for interpretation. Don’t shoot your mouth around like you know all about it. That’s the POINT of art, there is no direct correlation to a meaning because art is up for interpretation. So please, leave your bigotry behind.

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.
