    Are these photos of paintings or this some kind of Photoshop voodoo?

      with the image within image works, he shoots the area (eastern washington), returns home to make large prints, returns to the same scene and constructs the new piece to be photographed. other works involve merely moving parts of the scene, like this pile of dirt which was carefully rotated and rebuilt in place… http://chrisengman.com/index.php?p=dust-to-dust&w=dust-to-dust stellar work!

    These are really captivating, trying to understand them, I love how it looks like the canvases have been painted, it took me a while to see the second board in the first photo. I love that you have to figure the images out, you can perceive them in your own way, as to how they work. My favourites are the first and last simply for the way they make you think about them a bit longer than the other two to understand them. I really like the setting chosen too.

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.
