Tate’s art works get the Google Street View treatment
“Tate uses Google Street View to show how the landscape depicted in some of the nation’s best-loved paintings has transformed into modern day Britain.” Original guardian.co.uk article here
Click the image below to see the images – I couldn’t for the life of me, work out why they haven’t shown them “side-by-side” the orginal painting with the modern-day equivalent….and then I realised that they weren’t thinking about it that hard, or trying to create any new artistic statement, or critique about technology, art, painting, photography, the internet, etc…. (like I might), they are just doing for interest. So see what you think!
