On a good day, art can be a portal to another dimension. On a great day, it’s a staircase to nowhere. Meet “Diminish and Ascend,” or as we like to call it, the infinite staircase.

Designed by New Zealand artist David McCracken, this magnificent illusion stems from the seashore in Bondi, Australia and rises up into the heavens above. Depending on the atmosphere and weather conditions, the stairway appears to reach beyond the clouds into the celestial realms overhead. It’s basically an M.C. Escher drawing in real life.

Watch This Face Experience Aging, Death, Decay And Rebirth All In 75 Seconds

In real life, the process of aging, decaying and being reborn could take decades — even centuries. Thanks to the wondrous glory that is the internet, we can skip the boring parts and experience the entire cosmic miracle in 75 seconds.

London-based artist, animator and body painter Emma Allen performs the phenomenon that is reincarnation using her own face as a canvas. Allen turns from an aging woman to a rotting skeleton to a burgeoning fetus to a leopard, making a few other existential stops along the way. The entire process took Allen five days, using only stop frame animation and some very expertly applied face paint.

Top 5 World’s Wealthiest Artists — Damien Hirst Comes in First

Hirst made history in 2008, when he by-passed the art galleries to become the first living artist to sell an entire show directly through auction at Sotheby’s. The sale raised $198 million and his estimated net worth today of $350 million dwarfs that of American abstract expressionist painter and sculptor Jasper Johns and Welsh portrait painter Andrew Vicari, who tie for second place with net worth estimated at $210 million, each.American artists Jeff Koons and David Choe come in at fourth place on the Wealth X ranking with an estimated net worth of $100 million, each.

Choe was commissioned by Mark Zuckerberg to paint murals on the walls of Facebook’s office in 2007 and opted to be paid in Facebook stock rather than cash. This brought the graffiti artist a significant windfall when the company went public in 2012.

7 Secret Masterpieces That Are Now Yours To Download

The debate over how much work a museum should digitize, and at what quality, and for whom, is still being argued. But this week, the Getty Museum and Research Institute in L.A. came down hard on the free-and-good side, when it doubled its online art collection.

More than 10,000 works housed in the hilltop complex can now be downloaded in high resolution by any person with an internet connection. These include masterpieces like Vincent Van Gogh’s “Irises,” painted by the Dutch artist during his small window of good health at the Provençal asylum where he died.

Digitization involves “high-tech gadgets,” says Andrew Perchuk, deputy director of the Getty Research Institute. One such gadget is Treventus, a robot that uses compressed air and lasers to scan a book one page at a time. “It turns the pages,” Perchuk explains. “It’s not 100 percent automated — somebody still has to supervise it — but it can photograph very, very quickly.”

29 Picasso Artworks Hit The Bidding Block At The Same Time

Earlier this month an online raffle gave art admirers the opportunity to own their very own Picasso drawing for just $135. It might seem like a bargain, but with 50,000 raffle tickets available, the $1 million artwork could stand to raise $6.75 million in the end (with all proceeds going toward the preservation of the ancient city of Tyre).

That sum, however, doesn’t hold a candle to an upcoming sale of 29 Picasso artworks at Christie’s in New York City, heading to auction courtesy of the famed collector Jan Krugier. Including wood sculptures, minotaur sketches and portraits of Paloma, the bevy of Picasso masterpieces are set to hit the bidding block at the same time, with one lot alone boasting a $35 million high estimate.

***********************************

A Dialogue Through Art: Works from The Jan Krugier Collection, a two-part auction, will take place on November 4 and 5, 2013. Select pieces will be on view at Christie’s in New York City from October 12-27.

White Women With Black Hairstyles Redefine Corporate America

Almost every woman has toiled before the mirror, trying desperately to look “professional.” Photographer Endia Beal explored this frustration that occurs so often in the corporate sphere, this feeling of otherness that asks women, quite simply, to change. For minority women this change is often far more difficult, as the ideal corporate appearance remains, in most cases, the white male.
