Long Live The Kings

Long Live The Kings
I am well aware this is a commercial disguised as a documentary but I love the look of Super 16mm and this beauty is all film. Watch below!

    Sorry to desappoint you here, but this documentary has nothing to do with a commercial.
    Edwin jean’s company has been credited here because they made this happen by being the partner of it, allowing us to purchase the expensive 16 mm films.
    Besides that, nobody got paid and we genuinely lived the experience of a road trip (like we do every year): bad/good weather, cheesy trailer parks, fun, friendship, laughs, breakdowns and discover of the area we decided to drive through. In a word, some memories for ever.

      i’m not sure why you started with “sorry to disappoint you” as if i was hoping it was an ad? i actually called it a beauty and loved the look of it. i wouldn’t have posted it here if i didn’t think it had artistic merit.

      i enjoyed watching it and wanted to share it here and also wanted to describe what people were going to watch. i never made any comment about people being paid or not. my comment didn’t even have anything to do with Edwin. the entire film is a promotion for your motorcycles, i don’t think that’s debatable – it is similar to a look book.

      people send me several fashion films/video look books each week and i don’t post them but i decided that eventhough this could be put into that category i would post it anyways. my guess is you haven’t hung around here long enough to understand why i prefaced your film this way.

      i hope you understand i really liked it. that’s it.

      cheers,

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.
