Googlescapes

 

Already giving us Google Earth, Google Sky, and Google Sea, what other sectors will Google infiltrate as they steam roll to world domination?  We already rely on it's search engine as a quasi portable memory hard drive, which the remembrance of insignificant facts can leave way for more important and additional cranial storage space.  Will future pastoral vistas be owned and sponsored by the almighty, Google? If idyllic landscapes become a rare enough commodity will simply casting a view upon them cost awe strucken gazers?

The image above is from the work of Italian conceptual artist Filippo Minelli, who imagines a world dominated buy Google.  You can see other similar images at his ongoing project here.
