Photos Of BP Oil Spill

bp oil spill photoos

The Boston Globe has been posting a great collection of photographs from the disasterous BP oil spill. While these images are beautifully taken they are constant reminders of our greedy need for more oil and our relentless desire to make a profit with disregard to how our actions will effect our future.  More images after the jump.

Behind The Scenes: Installing Maurizio Cattelan’s Untitled 2001

maurizio Cattelan

If you’re a fan of Maurizio Cattelan you know that he is known for big ambitious installations that are both humorous and conceptually engaging. Sotheby’s will soon be auctioning one of Cattelan’s most famous works, Untitled 2001. This is not an easy work to display as it involves the use of master paintings and a giant hole in the ground. To their credit Sotheby’s went through great pains to present this brilliant work in its natural setting. Sotheby’s isn’t hip to embedded videos just yet but clicking on the image above to watch this behind the scenes install video will be worth the extra lick of the mouse.
