    That was so cool, I was transported back to a tom and jerry esque world. One thing that was so brilliant about that is everything! seemed to be analog with no effects work. The some of the flames were hands! anyone catch that?

    I really loved the match because they whole process was self initiated. It was as if someone decided, “Since I am lighting my cigarette, I might as well set everything else ablaze too!”

    If you happen to be in Shoreditch, London – go to Jaguar Shoes on the high street, there’s a whole installation to go with this video – many of the props fill the place, stuck to the walls and the ceilings, it’s brilliant.

    The hot mulled Cider is a winner too!

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.
