    This is such a cool website! last year when I did my graffiti project I ended up in Brussels. It actually show the site I viewed myself (De Wand metro station near Vorst) that is so cool! It is pure brilliant. Great, thanks for sharing!

    Google earth offers this ‘in-between space’ option, the ‘neither here nor there’ feeling. I always think it is somehow out of date. I wonder if the stolen Banksy artwork is still in view.

    In a way one could consider Google Earth as the official art gallery for street art.It does make me think about the striated/smooth.

    I would love to find out more about your graffiti project. I am in Brussels at the moment and have observed and seen a lot of street art here.

    Very interesting comment on google earth being the in-between space option. How fast it is updated will influence how up to date it is.. I will check out if Banksy’s artwork is still there!

    I am finding many sites attempting to be the art gallery for street art – it is interesting to position Google Earth as the ‘official art gallery’. In fact perhaps it is most apt.

    hi Chantelle,
    most of my project is part of the summer course I did last year with one of the PhDs on MSCEL, Dennis Dollens. You can get info from this blog: http://udrift.blogspot.co.uk/2012_07_01_archive.html
    The focus was on using mobile technologies and how these interact with urban spaces. It was all very thought provoking and good fun.My ‘love sick’ story is more or less part of this approach.

    Thanks Gina. I have just been to the site and started reading some of the post there – how fascinating. Bo and Michael write extremely well – very thought-provoking indeed.
