Painter Transforms Google Maps Into Works of Art

Megan Scheminske has a great eye—she took the same mundane map imagery you look at every time you check directions with Google and spun it into minimalist, hyperlocal beauty—the "You Are Here" series.

Scheminske's website is essentially an art project in itself, pairing photographs on the terrain that inspired them with a google pin drop of that area. It's all very meta! But the work is novel, and interesting far beyond its gimmick. [Megan Scheminske via reddit]
