    not sure how i feel about this video to be honest – i am more into the idea of the mobile app that Kate Moross designed for Simian that displays moire patterns that you can manipulate while you listen to the album

    I feel like they just didn’t take the idea for the video far enough to be visually and/or mentally entertaining.

      and i feel like they already had a video with a really similar idea, no?

        That would have to be one of my favorites too. And, after seeing through their youtube channel I’d definitely say that they’re trying to emulate some form of synesthesia. Which at least conceptually makes this video more interesting.

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.
