    This is really cool. Except that it says paintings by Holton Rower and theres mostly one lady doing all the pouring -_-

      It’s always about the person with the vision behind the project. It’s why we associate a director as the creator of a film, though hundreds of people work on them.

    We know exactly what happens when you pull a lot of color one after each other on a surface like this, but it is amazing how we can not stop watching this and keep being so fascinated about the result…so simple but so effective, specially on a big surface…it looks great…

    Many big artists have other people do the production work.

    I really love it.
    It’s hypnotic and as someone has said even if we all know the result of adding colors to eachother makes, it works.

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.
