A Ghost Train, "Chemin Vert"

  • Artist Giacomo Miceli animates panoramic images from Google Street View

  • Tags:

    With his video for A Ghost Train's "Chemin Vert," Italian artist Giacomo Miceli takes us on a mind-warping journey spanning four seasons and five continents. Using only images pulled from Google Street View, Miceli spliced them together through a process known as stereographic mapping. The results just made our pupils spiral. In his words:

    Chemin Vert is the result of a slow process of maturation spanning a few years. Different techniques were employed in the beginning, involving long trips on the road across Europe while shooting time lapse videos on the go. Back then the scope of the project was substantially different, concentrating more on the augmentation (as in augmented-reality) of landscapes. At a certain point the accent was moved on the aesthetic qualities of the landscapes themselves and on the immersive factor. In the final version of Chemin Vert the original footage comes from Google Street View, without which this project wouldn’t have been possible.

    For an immersive, interactive version of the video, check out the Chermin Vert section on Miceli's website.
