A short film by Maria Constanza Ferreira constructed from Google Street View screen grabs with fixed view perspective, giving the impression of an impossible long road, culminating in abstracted satellite images digitally manipulated into abstract art.
UNLESS you can do better?

Rome-based artist Giacomo Miceli presents a high-speed polargraphic projection road trip across five continents and four seasons. Sez he:
Chemin Vert is the result of a slow process of maturation spanning a few years. Different techniques were employed in the beginning, involving long trips on the road across Europe while shooting time lapse videos on the go. Back then the scope of the project was substantially different, concentrating more on the augmentation (as in augmented-reality) of landscapes. At a certain point the accent was moved on the aesthetic qualities of the landscapes themselves and on the immersive factor. In the final version of Chemin Vert the original footage comes from Google Street View, without which this project wouldn’t have been possible.
