Recreating Andreas Gursky (Google Earth Remix)
We grew out of Andreas Gursky a couple months back, after we received an email from a copyright protection company that works for him, in which they kindly and subtly threatened to sue. That’s precisely why we savored this piece by Florian Freier as much as we did. In it, he uses Google Earth to recreate a large scale photograph taken by Gursky in Bahrain, which he later printed himself… I wish there was a free high res download of it so that EVERYONE could print their own Gursky without the fear of being threatened by the dog artist and his posse.
Yet, in any case, you can check out the “making of” video here:
