Have you ever wondered what the sculptures and paintings in museums and galleries have to stare at all day? Me neither, but a Tumblr called What They See did, taking photos from the point of view of famous works of art. The results are surprisingly funny, and somehow melancholic at the same time.
You can keep your overpriced, eyeball-hurting 3DTVs, Sony, LG and Samsung—I'm investing in a couple of David Spriggs' 3D artworks instead. The British-Canadian artist paints using acrylic, layering sheets of glass like Dexter's box of blood slides.
The newest artwork in Denmark's ARoS museum wouldn't make much sense anywhere but the roof: Your Rainbow Panorama stretches 170 feet across, offering visitors a 360 degree view of the surrounding city in dazzling technicolor.
This is Tom Shannon creating one of his latest paintings. His process—swinging a giant pendulum rigged with six remote control paint guns over a canvas—is a marriage of chaos and control. His finished pieces...well, they're incredible.
Caleb Larsen's "A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter" isn't quite as menacing as its name makes it out to be, but it's definitely a flighty little fellow: it continually creates new eBay auctions for itself via a built-in Ethernet jack.
Jörg M. Colberg, an accomplished astrophysicist and photographer, created a series of images entitled "American Pixels" in which he applied a self-made compression algorithm to photographs, turning them into artworks of the digital age.
The central guideline of museum going has long been "do not touch." Soon, the Uffizi will flip that rule on its head by allowing visitors to flick and pinch their way through the museum's works of art.
