Google announces the Firmina subsea cable between the U.S. and Argentina

Google today announced its plans to build a new subsea cable that will connect the East Coast of the U.S. and Las Toninas, Argentina — with additional landings in Brazil and Uruguay. The idea here is to provide users in South America with improved low-latency access to Google’s portfolio of consumer and cloud services. The closest Google data center in the region (and its only one in South America) can be found near Santiago, Chile, which is connected to the U.S. West Coast through Google’s Curi...

The Great Wave Off Kanagawa by Hokusai: An Introduction to the Iconic Japanese Woodblock Print in 17 Minutes

When woodcut artist Katsushika Hokusai made his famous print The Great Wave off Kanagawa in 1830 — part of the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji — he was 70 years old and had lived his entire life in a Japan closed off from the rest of the world. In the 19th century, however, “the rest of the world was becoming industrialized,” James Payne explains above in his Great Art Explained video, “and the Japanese were concerned about foreign invasions.” The Great Wave shows “an image of Japa...

MIT artificial intelligence tech can generate 3D holograms in real-time

Despite years of hype, virtual reality headsets have yet to topple TV or computer screens as the go-to devices for video viewing. One reason: VR can make users feel sick. Nausea and eye strain can result because VR creates an illusion of 3D viewing although the user is in fact staring at a fixed-distance 2D display. The solution for better 3D visualization could lie in a 60-year-old technology remade for the digital world: holograms.Holograms deliver an exceptional representation of 3D world aro...

Great Art Explained: Watch 15 Minute Introductions to Great Works by Warhol, Rothko, Kahlo, Picasso & More

Can great art be explained? Isn’t it a little like explaining a joke? Yet this can be worthwhile when the joke is in a foreign language or an unfamiliar idiom, a long-forgotten dialect or an alien idiolect. Consider, for example, the most common response to Mark Rothko’s monochromatic rectangles: “I don’t get it.” Will perplexed viewers better understand Rothko’s Seagram murals when they learn that “he was found in a pool of blood six by eight feet wide, roughly the size of one of his pa...

A Whimsical Secret Garden Meets Monet’s Water Lilies Wedding

When two worlds collide the results are captivating. A powerhouse team of wedding experts came together with an original concept to create an ethereal, secret garden-inspired editorial. When they arrived on the grounds of their venue The Clifton they couldn't help but remark on the resemblance to the painting Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies by Claude Monet. The inspiration then shifted to an event experience combining the two concepts together, which Karen Duckett Events pulled together ...

What are Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)? And How Can a Work of Digital Art Sell for $69 Million

Value in the art world depends on manufactured desire for objects that serve no purpose and have no intrinsic meaning outside of the stories that surround them, which is why it can be easy to fool others with fraudulent copies. Collectors and experts are often eager to believe a well-told tale of special provenance. As Orson Welles says in F is for Fake, “Lots of oysters, only a few pearls. Rarity. The chief cause and encouragement of fakery and phoniness.” “Concepts of fakery and origin...

Gardens and Music

  A Choral Feast: – At Christmas we went to a (socially distanced) concert in Hereford Cathedral. We are great fans of small choirs who sing Renaissance, Baroque and modern choral music: in this case it was Ex Cathedra. And part of the beauty of the experience is the places these choirs perform in, which are usually cathedrals. So, there is a combination of architectural delight, statues, memorials, history and glorious music. A saturation of pleasure and interest. Ex Cathedra at Hereford Cat...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Museums are no longer my cup of culture, thank you

When I was young, I really, really wanted to visit the great museums of the world. And I saw many of them. Nowadays, I just want to have a cocktail. That’s right. I’ll sit right here at this lovely cafe and sip my tasty glass of wine, while you go stand in that endless line to view the Mona Lisa. Here’s a clue: It’s underwhelming. Maybe because you have to elbow your way through the thundering hordes to even see it. Maybe because it’s way smaller than you expect. I’m not disrespecting museums. S...

Ed Harris talks portraying painter Claude Monet in free Valentine’s Day Zoom performance

In Ed Harris’ long and storied career from “The Right Stuff” to “Westworld,” one of his most renowned roles was painter Jackson Pollock. Harris directed, starred and even replicated the artist’s paintings in the film “Pollock” and was nominated for an Academy Award for it. Now Harris returns to the art world as a very different painter, Claude Monet. This Sunday, February 14th, Harris is starring with wife Amy Madigan and Stacy Keach in a Zoom production of Lanie Robertson’s “The Gardener” about...

Spain Will Pay $7.8 Million A Year To Keep Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection In Madrid

The Spanish government has concluded what is, in effect, a 15-year rental agreement with Baroness Carmen Cervera, the widow of Baron Hans Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemisza: in exchange for an annual payment of €6.5 million, she will allow her collection of 400 artworks — which range from Rembrandt and Caravaggio through van Gogh and Monet to Roy Lichtenstein, and estimated to be worth $1.2 billion in total — to remain alongside the 775 works that Spain purchased from her late husband in 1993.

What Is, What Could Be, and The Art of Yearning For What Never Was

Cincinnati, Ohio Dear Marianne,  I enjoyed you letter dated October 17th, but I’m left again wondering how the hell did another whole month go by? You might not know this about me, but I’m the kind of guy who’s always looking for a silver lining. For instance, I had high hopes for my Stewartia, but when it died I told myself, “Well, now at least there’s room for a Disanthus.” Per usual, replacing an impossible plant with one that’s even worse. Blinders. I wear them as well as anybody. When the p...

1915 film footage of Monet, Renoir, Rodin and Degas

In this charming little artifact over a century old, Russian-born French actor, Sacha Guitry, employs newfangled technology, the motion picture camera, to capture some of France's great artists at the ends of their lives. We find Monet, at 74, painting in his Giverny garden, Renoir, at 74, smoking like a fiend while painting, Rodin, at 75, walking around rather aimlessly and chiseling away in his studio, flecks of marble clinging to his beard. — Read the rest

Mass loss driven shape evolution model unveils formation of flattened 'snowman' (486958) Arrokoth

An international research team led by Assoc. Prof. ZHAO Yuhui from the Purple Mountain Observatory has built and applied a mass-loss-driven shape evolution model (MONET) and suggested that the current flattened shape of Arrokoth could be of evolutionary origin due to volatile outgassing in a timescale of about 1-100 Myr, which provides a natural explanation for the flattening shape of the body.
