Classic Album Covers in Google Street View

classicalbums-streetview-12

Last week I posted the fantastic “Dark Side of the Covers” project, where an artist imagined the flip side to iconic album covers. I just came across this equally cool blog post by Reddit user Shystone (Halley Docherty), who is now a “Google Street View specialist” at The Guardian.

Docherty has taken classic album covers and placed them into their precise locations using Google Streetview. Above is Beastie Boys “Paul’s Boutique” album cover in New York’s Lower East Side on the corner of Ludlow and Rivington.

See lots more below.

    Super cool! Thanks for posting this. My brother and I created the Sleevefacer app that does this same thing pretty well. I’ve included one below that I shot of the same Oasis cover while in Seoul. You can check out a huge gallery with some of these photos (along with a bunch of sleevefaces) here: http://site.sleevefacer.com/sleevefacer-app.html And, you can also find the app here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sleevefacer/id471522760?mt=8

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
