Urban Jungle Street View Fills Google Maps with Endless Plants

Transforming regular Google Street View images into an urban jungle landscape, this experiment by Einar Öberg dives deep into the unknown depths of this program to give users an entirely new experience.

Instead of seeing streets how they are in everyday life, Urban Jungle Street View allows users to see things in a different, almost apocalyptic manner. Trees are popping up all over in Times Square, and the prominent branding normally seen in this area is subsequently diminished. The experiment makes one question the development of the modern world, and whether or not urbanization is a good thing. At least for a moment these Google Street View images remind users of what busy hubs could look like if surrounded by vegetation.
