    Excellent. Je serais bien incapable de faire des autoportraits. Très bonne idée de se représenter avec & au travers de son travail !

    J’aime l’art urbain quand il est inventif comme ça.

    Usually, I don’t like things like this. They seem too self-indulgent. However, in Nihalani’s case, there seems to be a real conceptual element with significant self-control that makes them a step above. Not sure where the marketability is, however; how many people need to own clever “” photographs (which these certainly are).

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.
