Hyped: The Week In Links 3/23
On the blog we’ve been busy collating galleries of exhibitions, plus Squarepusher’s dazzling performance, from our San Francisco event. We also found out how you can attach your Legos to your Tinkertoy, saw a real-life Nyan Cat, saw how Quayola reinterpreted Rodin’s The Thinker into a digital sculpture, looked at a new breakthrough in digital cameras, saw our Creative Director and Global Editor on PBS’s latest Off Book show, found out how you can paint with time-lapse footage of the stars, played the Mad Men game, were wowed by mashups of Radiohead with nature footage, enjoyed some cute stereoscopic monsters, and investigated the kitchen music phenomenon.

· Virtual tourist: Google Street View now includes the Amazon rainforest (above). Go explore this giant, leafy life fest from the comfort of your screen.
