Classic Art Anew

, on December 29, 2011

Some more artwork stuff! Metafilter had another intriguing post, this time about a contest run by Booooooom (terrific name!) to remake classic works of art through creative use of photography. My other favorite is this Pot Pourri.
The submissions are fun, also fun are all the paintings, which led me to WikiPaintings, a site that does a great job organizing its subject matter along with high resolution images.

Metafilter has a post listing ¡the best! essays from the past year as chosen by The Browser. There are a wide variety of subjects covered, and the latter website will hopefully prove to be a new, interesting one to follow.
Oh there was another Metafilter post a while back about short science fiction stories.

Resting Place by Anton Pavlenko. Well, the image was taken down, so try this nice alternative.
