Lost Andy Warhol Artworks Discovered on Amiga Floppies from the ’80s - First official rescue mission and subsequent unearthing of a contemporary artist’s work from an old computer (Amiga 1000). Thanks to the Carnegie Mellon University’s Computer Club and a team of artists, archivists and curators who were able to extract some of Warhol’s lost pixels into the physical world. I’m curious about the retrieval process which has been documented by a video crew from the Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) and will be premiering as Trapped: Andy Warhol’s Amiga Experiments on May 10th at the museum. If you can’t make it to the burgh’ you can check out the documentary on its website starting May 12th. * Featured above, Andy Warhol with Debbie Harry at the 1985 Amiga Launch at Lincoln Center

Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand-The Mystical Arts

Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.

Feathers

These images were created by photographer Taylor Curry without a camera, using a process known as Cliché-Verre.

“The Cliche-Verre, to me, is quite literally Nature as the Negative. The items are placed directly onto a 4×5 or 8×10 glass plate. Using the color enlarger, I project the specimen onto 8×10 color film, RA-4 Color paper or Polaroid film capturing the image.

Sculptures by Yoshimasa Tsuchiya

Japanese artist Yoshimasa Tsuchiya makes the most whimsical sculptures. Wooden foals, unicorns, mermaids - soft, delicate and detailed - look almost like porcelain. These beautiful creatures warm the heart and fire the imagination. 

"In Japan, most of traditional buildings and sculptures are made of wood. Wood is a material which breath. It has own age, own viability. I studied these kind of traditional techniques in a graduate school of operative dentistry of cultural assets. I receive some inspirations from an old tale, a myth, a legend and my dream. The figure of my animals is a materialization of human hope, mind and heart."
