Well that’s what Brazilian artist Bruno Ribeiro has done, which is […]

Spanish Museum Relies On Robot To Catch Cracks In Artwork
I spy with my little eye, a crack in a Renaissance masterpiece! Well, that particular “job” has fallen onto the shoulders of a robot now, at least at Madrid’s Reina Sofia museum in Spain.

This Art Project Disappears With Every "Like"
You know how sometimes on Facebook you see posts shared by friends or family, asking you to “Like” a status or photo, after which a dollar will be donated to help a starving child or a war torn country?

Steamroller Gets A New Lease On Life As A Giant Music Box
The sound emanated from a steamroller can hardly be called music, and while an effort has been made to transform a steamroller into a giant music box, we guess it’s safe to say that it still does not sound very appealing idea. If you’re wondering what we’re on about, we’re talking about an art project by Dave Cole who essentially transformed a steamroller found on construction sites, into a gigantic […]

These Cameras Are Made From "Exotic" Materials In The Name Of Art
We’ve come across our fair share of cameras of different designs, but for the most part many seem to keep the traditional camera design and probably just feature different colors or materials.
