David Horvitz / Book Giveaway

If you are familiar with the work of David Horvitz then you know what to expect from his new book “Everything That Can Happen In A Day”. It is like a more meditative version of Miranda July’s “Learning to Love You More” project. He kindly sent over a copy for me, and it came with an extra copy so I could give it away!

I am going to limit this giveaway to Vancouverites or people who are willing to come and get the book from my house! If you would like to have my extra copy of the book head over to David’s Tumblr and find a post that resonates with you and then post the link to it in the comments.

I will pick a winner on Monday!

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.
