  • RON’ALD

    While I find this work very astonishing and inspirational I fail to see how they are prints and not mixed media on paper. Am I missing something?

    • Alt

      They’re multiple plate prints. Different textures are achieved by aquatint, sugar lift, burnishing, sand blasting, and all sorts of different techniques.

      • RON’ALD

        I see. I guess I was confused by the picture of the studio. That, and they all appear to be bleed prints. I wonder how many make it to an edition. Or, if there is an edition at all. Very interesting use of techniques indeed!

      • PandoraPress

        Actually, all the photos above are her paintings with casein or her mixed media pieces. So – you were right, Ron’ald. Hibiki does do multiple plate prints, but these ones aren’t it. All very beautiful though. Go to her gallery website (Augen Gallery) to see the prints.

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.
