Warped Google Earth Images Resemble Dali Masterpieces
Brooklyn based artist discovers a hidden feature of Google Earth.
You are probably familiar with Google Earth and how immeasurably interesting it can be using the service to take a look at places you may one day want to visit, or places you can’t visit, such as the bottom of the ocean. However, a new art project highlights certain geographic areas that viewers will never be able to visit — primarily because they don’t exist.
Artist Clement Valla has created a collection of images from Google Earth featuring landscapes that have been warped into unusual shapes, with roads dipping into the landscape and bridges plunging into bodies of water, cause by the way the images were captured.
