But he could not take it home with him because this one was housed in a 55-foot crate. It was, in fact, the world’s second largest painting (largest: Civil War panaorama in Atlanta).

The artist had recognized that the familiar 20-pixel graphic used by Google casts shadows on the widely consulted digital maps as if they were physical objects in real space. Likewise, when the map is switched to satellite mode, the virtual pins seem to become part of the city.” (architzer.com)
