    this is like OMG !!

  • Jason

    can anyone tell me where to find nibs like that? especially that enormous “fin” tailed one in the first video?

  • jason

    Actually, went ahead and answered my own question after suffering from extreme *ahem* pen envy.
    The “fin tailed” one is called a folded ruling pen, and is actually quite easy to make yourself. the spear tipped one is just a ruling pen, and is around $45 most places i looked. the very broad tipped pen is an Automatic Lettering Pen, and appears to be a size 6A

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.
