    Woah!

    Awesome concept, bravo Rethink!

    This has to be the same people who put those stickers on loonies to make it look like the loon was covered in oil.
    Both are great!

    I’m not sure the posters were as smart as the video made about them. Great cause

    As long as the video gets the message out there the campaign can be considered successful? The value of the clever idea is attached to the campaign and distributed through you tube, blogs etc.. Very Clever

    Simple idea implemented in creative way. Brilliant :-)

  • Nambo

    very interesting way of conveying the message without being trite

  • 8mismo

    This video along with the accompanying dramatic piano music gives the impression that the poster, in all its cleverness, is more important than the cause which it serves to remind people of. The poster is a great idea, but the video cheapens it. I like the idea of bringing the muck to people, so they have to confront it. Something else you could try: 1) collect the dead animals that wash up on the beach after an oil spill. 2) Freeze them. 3) Spread them around vancouver

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.
