Neighbors

Neighbors is a six-part project about people from San Francisco. What I like about it is there isn’t too much editing, it’s just a conversation while the person works. This is the Mike Giant interview.

  • Droolin

    Great interview. It’s a cool thing when you have these reoccurring thoughts that stay on your mind for months and months and somebody puts them into words. It helps you to understand your own thoughts, it’s like they’ve read your mind and told you what you’re thinking about from another perspective. It’s comforting to know you haven’t gone insane.

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.
