    i personally like animations to have more imperfections, more of a human touch to them but i applaud the effort here

    Heck yeah, I would have liked to see an alternate angle, just something for a split second that showed you, “oh dang, those are quarters yeah!”

  • Magda

    It’s awesome to see some video game related art featured! The music is fantastic and greatly sets the tone. I would agree though that it would have been better if you didn’t have to watch the behind the scenes to realize it was all real. Also, I wish the game connections would have been better elaborated on. Why do I need a gun to shoot Pac-man ghosts…

    Oh and the beginning of the stop motion was great because it reminded me of gameplay from the Virtual boy!

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.
