Extemporary land art on Google Earth

2015Web Art
The work Extemporary land art on Google Earth belongs to the series "Live Architectures", a series of site-specific artworks, that is created and usable exclusively on Google Earth. Through the augmented reality technology, the artwork aims to create an extemporary-temporary virtual land-art, constructing a sort of "mise en abyme" or "droste effect", in which an element shifts to the other in depth, merging the Google Earth environment with the augmented area in order to create a new space. "Live Architectures" is a series of digital and interactive artworks that were created over time in a wide-range production. These interactive artworks aim to reshape the indoor and the outdoor architecture, the environmental places and the 'digital environment', transforming it into something alive and vibrant.
