god’s-eye view

interesting art series, called “god’s-eye view”, showing four key biblical moments from a “google earth view” (or, god’s-eye view).

here’s eden:


and, noah’s ark:


and, moses parting the red sea:


and, finally, the cross:


i should say, the creators of these pieces (an art collective called “the glue society”) aren’t trying to present a christian worldview, necessarily. in fact, one of the creators explains their artistic motive:

“We like to disorientate audiences a little with all our work. And with this piece we felt technology now allows events which may or may not have happened to be visualized and made to appear dramatically real,” say The Glue Society’s James Dive. “As a method of representation satellite photography is so trusted, it has been interesting to mess with that trust.”

  1. Those are some great pieces of art, even if the artists aren’t presenting a Christian world view. It would be great to get prints of those!

  2. this is too cool! as a former geography teacher, a photographer, and a minister, this is like the best of all my worlds rolled into one! thanks to marko for throwing this onto his blog.

  3. Those are neat pictures but, didn’t God walk with Adam in the garden, promise to go with Noah, go before Moses and wasn’t that God in human form on the cross. I think His view is much closer than that.

  4. Lol. Might be a bit against the flow with my comment since since most are a bit too picky, too critical or too spiritual – but here goes: “cool pictures!”
