More Google Street View Stuff!

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!
