- The Secretby Kara Uhl on October 16, 2021 at 11:00 am
— the instinct to create, to make things with our own hands, is part of every man’s natural inheritance I like to think that somewhere in the work we do lies the secret of existence. Something our work demands of us, differing perhaps with each individual and yet, rightly understood, demanding our best; something it...

Tell someone you’re working on a children’s book, and you can anticipate a few common responses – expressions of delight, followed by a short list of favorite titles and hope-filled questions such as “Will there be pictures?” People generally assume that books intended for children will be simple affairs, often with some type of moral...

- Choosing the Right Cabinet Hingesby Lost Art Press on October 12, 2021 at 11:00 am

Experiments in Art from Google
A delightful sequence of new experiments in art and culture from the Google team.
The Curator’s Table: The link below will take you to page of micro-images that are arranged as if on a table, where you can zoom and select an image of choice to delve deeper into the original gallery or museum source.
‘Use the Curator’s table to discover new insights and connections between artworks.
Inspired by curators around the world, we applied the principle of laying out prints on a table when planning an exhibition, to our virtual gallery. Assets are animated in realtime. You can search objects, styles and artists, and view them in one 3D space’.

From the Google Cultural Institute…
The web makes the accessibilty of art and cultural artefacts real, in a way unparalleled in human history. In a world fractured by political and religious dissent, violence and inequality, access to the internet gives the interested visitor a vast catalogue of human creativity and expression upon the click of a mouse or the swipe of a screen icon.
These internet archival resources, dedicated to arts and culture, are at once both ethereal and concrete. We wonder how this availability might temper the consideration of other societies and cultures in the generations to come? If I can ‘see’ another people, perhaps their artistic output prevents me from seeing them as ‘the other’. Art as a cultural emollient?
This new Google site is a masterpriece of execution and artistic assemblage. Bringing together, as it does, a curated range of items from over a thousand museums, galleries and archives from around the world.
Whether your interest is in Japanese woodblock prints, or you would rather examine a museum’s visual art offering in intense close-up, then this site offers you much.
You can use the Google art camera zoom function to minutely examine images of original pieces, then zoom out and read an authorative short article on the work you have just engaged with.
We really liked Julio Romeros de Torres work The Fortune Telling. Dating from 1922, there is a real feel of getting closer to the work than ever the gallery stewards in the Museo Carmen Thyssen in Malaga would ever allow you. See the work here.
We found there was a softness, an intimacy, coupled to a leaning towards faith that was both gentle and captivating.
You can also access a daily digest of interesting objects and images, as well as take virtual tours of selected museums. As tech fans we enjoyed our ramble around the Tsiolkovosky State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics in Kaluga, Russia too.
Whether an existing ardent gallery visitor or just setting out on your arts journey, there is much to admire in the Google Arts and Culture web window.

Artspace in a post-Internet World
The development of technique with technological spread and reflections on how works will survive and resonate with viewers, or should that be users, in the post web space world.
The transmutation of art that’s based on the Internet from online-only platforms to materializations in real life leads to an interesting question: what will this work look like 100 years from now, when the technologies that these artists are using, commenting on, and imitating either no longer exist or have been radically transformed? Only time will tell.
