A few months ago we had a well-known spray can artist named Vulcan paint a set of Google Mini search appliances for a Japanese launch event. They came out really hot, so this past Friday we invited him to come to the Google campus in Mountain View and do a live painting during lunch time. It just so happened that our new Executive Chef from Beijing—a master ice sculptor in addition to his culinary talents—was also on campus. So during lunch we had spray cans and chainsaws flying, which led to the creation of two really cool pieces.
For those of you in the U.S., we've made pictures of the Google Mini search appliances as well as other art hanging at Google available to download to your cell phone.
Also check out this very cool time-lapse YouTube video of the painting coming to life by hip-hop filmmaker Kevin Epps.
