This Google Maps Artwork Creates New Ways of Looking at the World

Creating original pieces of work is what Jenny Odell is all about, and with her collection of Google Maps artwork, it is no wonder that her pieces are worth talking about.

Sifting through images on Google maps would not be an easy task, and neither would be finding the most interesting landmarks and comprising them into pieces of art. Odell has created images that have taken the likes of stadiums, basketball courts and nuclear cooling towers and have made them into spectacular pieces of art. Cropping the images and arranging them together acts as a collage that unites different places from all over the world. It is an entirely different way of viewing ordinary images. Odell's Google Maps artwork helps to bring a little bit of the extraordinary into everyday life.
