Over the years, we’ve seen a handful of people and companies create massive images to be seen in Google Earth. One of the most famous was the Maxim magazine cover in 2006, but we’ve also seen advertising companies that focus on Google Earth as a way to show off their clients ads.
Today we’ll show you Molly Dilworth, who creates giant murals on top of buildings with the intent of being seen in Google Earth. Molly uses only discarded paint, and simply uses the physical surface of the roof to determine the shape of the painting. The end result is a pretty cool work of art, as seen here:
The problem that Molly faces, as does anyone that creates artwork intended for Google Earth, is that you never know when your images might appear online. In Molly’s case, it seems only one of her pieces of artwork is in Google Earth so far, and sadly it didn’t get captured especially well by the satellite.
If you’d like to view that mural in Google Earth, just use this KML file.
Fortunately, as Google Earth continues to improve the quality and speed of their updates, and Molly continues to create more of these murals, we’ll likely start seeing some appear very nicely in Google Earth in the near future.
What’s the best artwork you’ve ever seen in Google Earth?
