The Baroque World of Rubens as a Kinetic Carousel of the Damned. Mat Collishaw, “All Things Fall” (screenshot by the author via Vimeo) In a colossal carousel of horror, British artist Mat Collishaw and designer Sebastian Burdon reinterpreted the chaotic violence of Peter Paul Rubens’s 17th-century “Massacre of the Innocents” paintings as a 3D-printed zoetrope.

The kinetic sculpture called “All Things Fall” was unveiled last October in Collishaw’s Black Mirror exhibition at Galleria Borghese in Rome, and recently Burdon shared the sculpture in action on Vimeo. According to Burdon, it “took about six months of work and involved creating over 350 character figures, environment elements and architecture.” Burdon has collaborated with Collishaw on giant zoetropes before, such as “The Garden of Unearthly Delights” with 200 figures inspired by the creepy mayhem of Victorian fairy paintings, shown at MAD Museum in 2011.

A2 Homage. Proof that Picasso and co are copycats at heart – in pictures. A new exhibition in London lays bare the mystery of inspiration by showing how modern giants from Francis Bacon to Pablo Picasso were influenced by their predecessors.

Proof that Picasso and co are copycats at heart – in pictures

From Andy Warhol's obsession with Giorgio de Chirico to Sigmar Polke's update of a classic Goya drawing, here are some great cases of art history repeating itself • In Homage runs at Skarstedt London until 8 August Pablo Picasso said: 'We, the painters, are the true heirs, those who continue to paint. We are the heirs to Rembrandt, Velázquez, Cézanne, Matisse. A painter always has a father and a mother, he doesn’t emerge out of nothing.' Bacon on Velázquez’s Pope Innocent X: 'I think it is one of the greatest portraits ever made, and I became obsessed by it ... it haunts me, it opens up all sorts of feelings and areas of – I was going to say – imagination, even, in me.'

Standing in a busy area of South London, Wearing stopped passers-by and asked them to write down what was on their mind. With their permission, she then photographed them holding their statement. As indicated by the title of the work, Wearing has written that this collaboration 'interrupts the logic of photo-documentary and snapshot photography by the subjects' clear collusion and engineering of their own representation.'

Picasso’s “The Dream” reclines with some headphones listening to music while Friedrich’s “Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog” has whipped out his smartphone to snap a picture of the view and (probably) post it to Instagram.
