The Sheepdogs / Made of Imagination

This is the second video we produced for MTV and Sony Xperia, and it features The Sheepdogs! I’m so stoked they were down to be a part of this project!

We switched it up a bit this time, instead of having The Sheepdogs perform with homemade instruments we paired them up with award-winning Afro Cuban pianist Hilario Duran and drummer Reimundo Sosa so they could explore a new sound together. The results were AMAZING. I wish they’d all do a whole album together!

Hopefully this video gets you stoked to spend the weekend building instruments and exploring styles of music that you normally wouldn’t! Your submissions to our homemade instruments project have been amazing so far! I’ll be posting a gallery of submissions shortly!

If you wanna get involved jump over here.

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.
