Google Map Street Art

Geek Shot: Augmented Reality

The work of Berlin-based artist Aram Bartholl examines the blurred lines between our physical lives and encroaching digital borders. His public art series, Map uses the familiar red destination marker from Google Maps to question how technology dictates the center of the city and how it then directs citizens' real lives.

Aram took further inspiration in creating a near 20-foot high scale model from how when in Google Maps' satellite mode, the red marker seems to actually be a part of the city rather than just the animated map. Map has appeared in cities in Germany, Poland, and Taiwan.
