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.

  • makes me feel all kinds of ways all at once, in awe + creeped out simultaneously. beautiful & eerie documentation. happy this exists.

    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/

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
