Matt Leines (in Yokohama)

Artist Matt Leines in Japan
A couple years ago I ran into Matt Leines in Japan and I snapped this photo of him snapping a photo of some happy kids! The other day he sent me this photo out of the blue:

You can see his flash going off in my photo so we actually captured the same exact second! For some reason this I find this totally satisfying.

    This could have been the solution to an episode of CSI!
    “We only need to see what’s to the left of the kids and we’ll catch the terrorist/murderer/camera man!”

    I’ve done this same thing in an aquarium in Las Vegas! It looked super awesome! Unfortunately I don’t have the other photographer’s image.

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.
