Creative Mornings / Vancouver Event

Creative Mornings / Vancouver event
Next Friday I will be speaking at Creative Mornings. This monthly lecture series, created by Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss), has quickly spread to 36 different cities including Vancouver.

The main reason I am doing this talk is because I am making a conscious effort to pursue everything that I am afraid of. I will be talking about aliens, and the 1996 blockbuster film “The Rock”. There is a possibility I will never speak publicly again.

Short interview on Creative Mornings/Van Tumblr: HERE.

Tix for my talk go on sale on Monday (they are free): HERE.

    Hey man, good luck with the talk, you’ll be great! The few times I’ve done something like that they went past incredibly quickly (for me at least, maybe not for the audience…). Will it be online anywhere?

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.
