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]
