Google Earth now has a new tour that highlights pieces from what’s known to be the largest contemporary land art undertaking in the world. “The Rhythms of Life project, by internationally renowned Australian sculptor Andrew Rogers, comprises 47 structures built over 13 years. The installations are found in 13 countries and were created with the help of 6,700 local people. Known as geoglyphs, these structures are built in exotic disparate locations including deserts, fjords, gorges, national parks and altiplano, with local materials by local people. They are so large they can be easily observed in Google Earth’s satellite imagerym,” informs Karin Tuxen-Bettman, Google Earth Outreach.
To view this tour in Google Earth, please download the KML file.
Or, watch the video below that will take you on a tour of this project. You will discover land art in Sri Lanka, China, Bolivia, and Iceland. Andrew has also built sculptures more recently in Antarctica, Kenya, and Turkey and these pieces will be added to the tour in the future.
