Art from Google Earth Imagery

We have several times looked at satellite imagery that can serve as art. We have also looked at a Chrome extension called Earth View that uses satellite imagery as a background in new tabs in Google Chrome. And we have looked at artwork so large that it can only really be appreciated from aerial or satellite imagery.

Today we are looking at two recent stories of satellite imagery being used for art.

First up is artist Federico Winer who has created stunning artwork by taking satellite imagery and adjusting the colour and luminosity to give it a whole new look. See the full story here and see the artist’s website here.

The second story is that clothing and design company Betabrand has recently partnered with satellite-maker Planet Labs to produce clothing printed with satellite imagery. See the full story here, or the Planet Labs post here.
