Google Earth Project
This is my attempt to post my Google Earth Project online, which was my trip to Washington DC. I picked places I like best on my trip, its starts with sfo airport,then Lincoln memorial,Washington monument,the natural history museum,library of congress,the US capitol,the national gallery of art and finally the san jose airport.I took out the videos and uplaod all my pictures online thinking that it might work but it did not. If you notice the stalling in between places, it was suppose to pop up pictures.I guess I should be happy that the building are there..or not depending on the Internet speed. I have a feeling that my pc is the problem. Maybe I should switch of to a mac like everyone else...
An artist that I thought was interesting that also use goolge earth as his installation art pieces is Fabrizio Pavari. It's interesting how he takes monumental location and add his art of glass letters and symbols. Here's a link

My second artist is Evert Schut. His use goolge earth to create landscape painting from a satellite's point of view. He is a biologist/ environmental expert but is an artist at heart. His paintings captures a modern prospective of what landscape in our time would be seen. He's very talented.
