Natacha Paganelli

“Kolo”, created by French-artist Natacha Paganelli during her artist residency in Serbia. It is currently on display at Kunsthalle Mulhouse (France) until January. Can someone go see it and let me know how it is installed in the gallery? I think it would be amazing if it was projected in a circular room.

    • natacha

      Dear Jeff,

      you could have seen Kolo in Lille untill November in big circular screen, the exhibition named Dancing machine. So that’s means usually i present this work installation in that way …. So if you need more informations, you could ask me… I’m right now in Korea working on a nother video. Thanks for having spread my video on vimeo, it was amazing for me, so i really thank you.

    kiss kiss kiss

    that’s because:

    1. you don’t speak french
    2. you don’t speak serb… me neither
    3. it is not well promoted! but now it is well promoted

    This is amazing, is there a way of finding out who composed the melody for this video? Does Natacha have an official site? Are there more pieces of her out there? (I did a brief research and only found her on vimeo) What’s the name of her musician? Oh my God…I’m in love, this is seriously insane… great post Jeff, I wish this kinda artists could tour worldwide.

    And the circle room installation would be totally amazing, I think it would be a visual upgrade for the feeling it already detonates.

      About her musician..look at the Vimeo! Here is themtc who made it. He is from Paris and that’s his myspace: http://www.myspace.com/mtclab

    So captivating even on a small screen. I can see if being projected in a circular space. Either way, I wish I could experience it projected right in front of me.

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.
