    modest mouse? what?

    I thought the fist picture looks a little familiar. The second comfirmed my suspicion. The simplicity and aesthetically pleasing nature of these are pretty sweet. Really nice to look at.

    The artist’s name is Matt Clark. He used to own and run the Houston gallery ( wehaveaproblem.com ) on Capitol Hill in Seattle. The space itself was highly designed and I remember Matt doing a really great large mural piece right before he closed the gallery as an homage to Chuck Jones and Wile E. Coyote..it was very inspired. His work is really conceptual and very in tune with his own insight into the world. I think he lives here in Portland now.

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.

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.
