    I thought it was about Michelle Blades for a second. I guess that would be too much talent for a single person. Those paintings are really cool, this other Michelle is very talented as well.

    jeff, i love that statement: “my favorite tumblr on the entire internet.”  comon, better than maddieonthings? maybe I should go to michelles tumblr before expressing my love for that compliant coonhound.

    Also, #1 looks like a rectangular SBTRKT.

    ME TOO. She is my favorite right now. When my friend saw one of my oil paintings based on a collage I did, he suggested I look her up and she was a weird, but pleasant surprise. Weird in the fact that she had a piece that was very similar to mine, is wrapped up in the idea of the apocalypse and I felt as if she makes the kind of work and uses the kind of materials I have been striving to be/use. I don;t know how to explain it. It’s like she crawled into my head, but in the future. A weird admiration, because I never felt that way about an artist before.

    Much respect to this woman. I’ve been making something every day since the start of this year on my blog, makingmade.com, and it is so much work–and my stuff is no where near as elaborate as Michelle’s. That first painting is stunning. Well done!

    Amazing.

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.
