    this is by far the best one of the remake series
    from picking frida ( and especialy that painting ) to realization of the final remake.
    I realy like the reference to painting the bodypaint gives in the foto
    & this faint sense of erotic it gives you
    which is also always there when looking at kahlo
    she also had this weird aura around her,
    which is drawing you closer and at the same time pushes you away

    claire neatly caught that aspect.

    reminds me I still have to take a photograph sooner or later: in my neighbourhood there’s one guy living in an antique flat.. in his eating room there’s a wall full of frida kahlo paintings (around 20), it’s always odd walking by the window each evening.

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.
