      yep, my thoughts exactly, very eerie

    I saw some of these beautiful photographs in a small show a year or so ago, such amazing work. It’s definitely the kind of work you need to go see for yourself, in person.

    These pictures definitely make me wonder where Sharrod is today. Excellent work.

    Just wanted to say thanks for all of your kind comments about my work.

    @Mr Draned: Sharrod will be starting his senior year of high school in September. He hasn’t decided if he will enter the military or go to college. When I first met him, he was dead set on going into the military. Fingers crossed that he chooses college since his dreams and desires will be better served that route but ultimately, obviously, it’s his decision. It’s been an amazing journey watching him grow up, gaining his confidence so that all these pictures to be made, and mentoring him when allowed.

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.
