REAL LIFE ON THE STREETS

“Street with a View” is an incredibly neat art project conducted merrily down a one way lane, in conjunction with Google Street View. Artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley, along with their friends and community, staged a series of action packed scenes, which in turn was captured with 360-degree photographs of the street. The results then became part of the navigable Street Maps.

Watch this video all about the project and process:

And check out this map for the street view of Sampsonia Way, Pittsburgh. Keep an eye out for the marching band (seen above), sword fights, love lasers, joggers and knotted sheet escapees. You could call it the ultimate ‘Easter egg’!

The whole project totally gets me thinking – how else can we use technology and art for the good of our community, and for the joy of people discovering our community?
