Post-Apocalyptic Google Earth Glitches

June 10, 2013 | Julia Dawidowicz

Google Earth has glitches. These glitches make great art.

Trapcode founder Peder Norrby’s series of well-executed screen captures of glitched out iOs map images give us a vision of a post-nuclear-holocaust world. From trees melting into the streets and flattened cars on collapsed highways to a deadlier Coney Island Cyclone, these images — produced, as always, by malfunctioning algorithms — offer a vivid glimpse into a dystopian future.

It could never happen. Or could it?!
