Oh My Maps (by Marc Khachfe)

London-based artist Marc Khachfe fuses science, space, and art in his series of large-scale maps composed of multiple layers of photographs and data. ‘I was blown away by the nighttime images taken of cities at night by the astronauts on the ISS (international space station) and wanted to print out a large poster of the London one for my office, but I found them too blurry and too small to look good good printed out large format’, Khachfe explains. Sourcing open map data, Khachfe has composited the visual information with data and layered it with CGI, to mimic the glow of streets and buildings. finally, photoshop merges all the layers together and play with colors, exposure and glow augment the reality of each image. the artistic interpretations are geographically accurate and match the real images as closely as possible.

Maps (in order): London - Helsinki - Rio - Chicago - Cleveland - Amsterdam
