Classical Sculptures Dressed As Hipsters by Léo Caillard & Alexis Persani  

As if they didn’t already have the perfect physique… now the Louvre’s classical sculptures have flawless style as well. French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with digital mastermind Alexis Persani to give these ancient sculptures a sartorial update with their “Street Stone Series.”

Caillard photographed the statues in the buff and then used his friends as models for the flannels, cuff jeans, and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a startlingly natural-looking series. Suddenly the way they lounge, look off into the distance and sport those flamboyant moustaches looks all too calculated. Then again, since the now-monochrome statues were originally brightly painted, maybe the images aren’t that far off base after all.

Newly Discovered Warhol Artworks Found On Amiga Floppy Disks From 1985

From The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry:

A multi-institutional team of new-media artists, computer experts, and museum professionals have discovered a dozen previously unknown experiments by Andy Warhol (BFA, 1949) on aging floppy disks from 1985.

The purely digital images, “trapped” for nearly 30 years on Amiga® floppy disks stored in the archives collection of The Andy Warhol Museum (AWM), were discovered and extracted by members of the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Computer Club, with assistance from the AWM’s staff, CMU’s Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry (FRSCI), the Hillman Photography Initiative at the Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA), and New York based artist Cory Arcangel.

It’s kinda funny to be presented with the news of new works by established artist from a digital medium, but then again it is well known that Warhol loved working with the Commodore Amiga - some links below:
