Tumblr Of The Day: The Camera In The Mirror

MarioSantamaria-03

A few years ago Google launched the Google Art Project, as a way of providing virtual tours of gallery spaces. Now Barcelona-based artist Mario Santamaría has created a tumblr called The Camera In The Mirror where he collects images of the Google camera capturing itself in a mirror.

There’s something unsettling about the camera’s ghostly appearance; the images almost look like stills from a Kubrick film. More images below.

    Kubrick is spot on. Somebody should come up with an elaborate conspiracy theory that ties together Google’s image capture projects with the whole Kubrick-faked-moon-landing idea. Seems like perfect internet fodder.

    Would love to see this translated to a set of isolated motels,hostels,hotels and spaces across different countries.

    Have you seen this? It’s my favorite Google related art project – the images are frequently beautiful, disturbing and surreal. http://9-eyes.com/

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
