  • Luisi

    I love it

    • Ivan Noel

      This work is shameful, blatant plagiarism, down to the details: ideas, concept, themes and even texts.
      Let’s keep Art clean like Sports are not, and reject this fraudulent artist.

      For anyone with doubts, do a simple Google search on on the renowned French Photographer ‘Bernard Faucon ecritures’, work created 25 years ago.

    I love Barbara Kruger’s work but their questioning always feels very overwhelming and aggressive.  These images question in a quiet and measured way – peacefully – and in that peaceful moment I start to feel like I might be able to answer.  Love these.

    • lepetitfaon

      EXACTLY! I love the scale of these, perfect, not overwhelming at all, since its less abrasive I think it leads to more reflection about the piece and the text, love

    Ms. Lee (the so-called artist above)

    There is ‘inspiration’, which all artists know about, and there is outright plagiarism.

    Your work, in the ‘neon light’ theme, Ms.Lee, is outright plagiarism, and you should be ashamed to release it as your own work.

    You also don’t even try to disguise it, and go so far as to copy the exact texts used by the original creator of this Art.

    Do you think people are so uncultured to not know about the famous works by the French renewed photographer Bernard Faucon?

    I have contacted Mr Faucon who has seen your work and feels outrage by it, and intends to act upon it.

    You are not an artist but a fraud. As you will see, I am a well-known film director, and I do not take kindly to this kind of deception. I fully intend to make this public from now on, wherever you try to pass your work as ‘Art’.

    Anyone with any doubt, do a simple Google search for ‘Bernard Faucon scriptures’: a work produced 25 years ago – the exact same photographic concept with, in places, the exact same texts, on the same themes. This is not just inspiration, way beyond ‘derivative’, but a straight theft of an idea and artistic concept, down to the details. This is professionally and ethically unacceptable.

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.
