This clever Google map art project by Taiwanese designer, Shu-Chun Siao juxtaposes that most modern of mapping devices- Google Maps, with the natural homing instinct of our feathered friends.

As part of Project Google Birdhouse, the designer has placed a number of birdhouses in the shape of the iconic Google map markers around Taiwan in the hope that they will become a navigation point for the birds, just as they are for humans.

The artist states: "The project tries to view the world from different perspectives and scales. We shall change our characters to be surprised by the macro and micron landscapes."

This is the latest in a slew of Google Map inspired art projects from ‘Google Maps Inspired Graffiti’ to ‘Geo-tagged Graffiti’. Check out the related trends below.
