    by Leonard Teo on May 10, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    Back in 2013-14 when ArtStation was first being built, we sketched out what the profiles looked like and on that sketch were two innocuous numbers for Cumulative Likes and Views that a user got from artworks on the site.

    by Matthew Eller on September 29, 2023 at 3:01 am

  • Recommended Reading: Butler’s ‘Field Guide’
    by Lost Art Press on September 28, 2023 at 7:25 pm

    Almost every week, someone on the LAP Open Wire asks what book they should read to learn about the different furniture styles. To be honest, I haven’t had a good answer because most of the guides to furniture styles are terrible and not worth buying for $1. So I took some time to see if...

Experiments in Art from Google

Google art table image

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…

google arts and culture Button image
Visit the world of arts and culture through the prism of Google…





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?

Utamaro, example image of the work
Kitagawa Utamaro 1753 – 1806. Discover the work here…

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

artspaceLogoButtonArtspace is a publication that offers some really facinating insights into modern art.

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.
