Monica MIRZA's insight:

On Jacques Lacan's behalf, in 1955 André Masson covered Gustave Courbet's "The Origin of the World" with a surrealist painting ("Terra Erotica").

80 years before, Courbet had already been led led to hide his artwork with a winter landscape, "Le Château de Blonay".

The times they are a-changin' : today the original painting has turned worldwide famous and is shown in Paris Musée d'Orsay...

Photo Collage of the Sun - NASA | by M. ZHANG | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

Posted by Michael Zhang on July 8, 2013 • 

 

"Our sun can look very different in photographs depending on the wavelength of light you’re trying to capture. [...] NASA recently took a collection of sun photos shot at different wavelengths and combined them into the beautiful photo collage seen above (here’s a higher-res version).

The photographs in the collage were all captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) — the same project that created the “3 years in 3 minutes” time-lapse of the sun that we shared back in April."

Yamaoka uses an app, which costs under £5, to recreate famous works of art such as Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring. The artist also uses the iPad to paint original compositions"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

The short video shows Yamaoka proceeding... just wondering what Vermeer would think of this  :-)

http://www.artcurial.com présente JonOne :

"[...] Pilier du Graffiti, John Andrew Perello grandit à Harlem où il commence à poser « Jonone » dès l’age de 17 ans, en 1980. Surpassant dans un pur « freestyle » les lois dictées par le Graffiti comme par l’univers de l’Art contemporain, son œuvre s’impose comme l’une des plus personnelles de sa génération. Elle est encore un pont entre New York et Paris où l’artiste mondialement reconnu vit depuis 1987. [...]".

Monica MIRZA's insight:

Le street art se fait peinture et les éclats de couleurs jaillissent, s'ordonnant sur la toile : connaissiez-vous cet artiste ? Moi pas, et ces couleurs-là me ravissent :)

Map of 10,000 Tweets shows New York City at Work

Map of 10,000 Tweets shows New York City at Work | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"

What does where we tweet say about how we live and work? That's one of the questions Oakland-based programmer Eric Fischer hoped to answer with his latest mapping project. [...] The project lays out around 10,000 geotagged tweets and 30,000 point-to-point trips in cities like New York City to plot the flow of people in terms of favored paths. In his map of NYC, seen above, there is a huge ink blot lining Broadway; as we've long suspected, it looks like the busy avenue is the backbone of the city. [...]

Who Did What to Our Logo

Who Did What to Our Logo | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it
How designers reimagined our logo for the Innovation Issue cover.
Monica MIRZA's insight:

"You should have seen the letters we received in 1967 when the newspaper’s legendary design director, Louis Silverstein, decided to remove the period at the end of The New York Times logo, which had been there for 116 years. [...] We asked eight designers to re-imagine the logo. Four ended up on four different covers, and another four ran inside the issue. We also have 10 additional sketches. Here, the designers describe how they approached the assignment."

"The Mountain" - Time-lapse PHOTOGRAPHY | TSO Photography

"The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I [TSO Photography] know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. [...]"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

El Teide (filmed in April 2011) is Spain´s highest mountain (3718m) : one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars. It hosts Teide Observatories,  which is considered one of the world´s best observatories.

A dazzling time-lapse movie :-)

A_B_ peace & terror etc. The computational aesthetics of love & hate | The Luxury of Protest | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"A_B_ ... is a geopolitical survey of the 192 member states of the United Nations with regard to the quantitative degree to which each contributes to peace and terror in the world. The project is a dual-sided poster where the A_ side displays measures of peace, while the B_ side, measures of terror. For each of the A_B_ measures, the graph is divided into 3 rings (3 separate indexes for peace and 3 separate indexes for terror) that are individual quantitative measures obtained from researchers working in the field of geopolitics. The quantitative variation for the peace and terror measures is represented as variation in line thickness: thin line=low value, thick line=high value."
