    Totally stolen from Lasse Gjertsen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9698TqtY4A

      There is a disturbing trend with internet comments to completely oversimplify things. We are all human, and as such creative impulses and creations often overlap. The video is sequel to the original soundscaoes which we created 3 year ago – http://vimeo.com/2927154.

      Having never seen it before, the Lasse Gjersten video is extremely cool. That said I think your energy would be better spent either making constructive criticism or actually making something yourself.

      i totally agree isaac ^

      the comments section on every single post here could devolve into a “so and so did it first” discussion – there are always going to be references and influences. we don’t need idea police, we need more people out making things.

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.
