Tel Aviv Museum of Art

On our last day in Israel we had a tour of the newly opened Herta and Paul Amir Building at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It was designed by architecture firm Preston Scott Cohen, and it is astonishing.

We were given our tour while the gallery was closed (star treatment!) so there were a few people cleaning and I thought it was hilarious that this one guy rested his broom right on the sculpture! (I hope this doesn’t get him in any trouble, he was doing a great job!)

Anyways, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a must-see if you ever get the chance to go to Israel!

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.
