Keeping it street

Google Maps? Awesome.

Google Street View? Awesomer.

Using Street View to create art? Crikey!

On May 3rd 2008, artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley invited the Google Inc. Street View team and residents of Pittsburgh’s Northside to collaborate on a series of tableaux along Sampsonia Way. Neighbors, and other participants from around the city, staged scenes ranging from a parade and a marathon, to a garage band practice, a seventeenth century sword fight, a heroic rescue and much more...

The result of this endeavor, dubbed Street With A View, has only recently hit the web.

Check it out here, including all the scenes as well as videos of the shoot.
