    first thing that came to mind lookin at the 3rd one down: chris van allsburg’s polar express

  • Parker

    What is this the Chronicles of NJ. Lovein the Detail… look at that ashtray.

  • Bolla

    Someone please tell me how long it took to complete one of those pieces.

  • Ian

    He can paint, but the subject doesn’t really do anything for me.

  • trip

    1.) what caught the attention of the guy in the blue?
    is he really listening?
    what was their conversation about?
    how long have they been there?
    what are there names?

    2.)why does he have that sort of haircut?
    what type brand of jeans are those and how expensive were they?
    why is he on the floor, is he high?
    where did he get that tattoo, how much did it cost?
    whats he thinking about?

    3.)what is she thinking about?
    is she waiting for someone?
    how many smokes and drinks of coffee have she had?
    what does she take in her coffee?
    is she looking at some one?

    4.)did he shave his mohawk that today?
    is that his last smoke, how much where his smokes, how long has he been smoking, is he going to quit?

    the questions are unimportant, but the painting are immortalizing to think that.

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.
