Three-Dimensional Aerial Shots of Airports


German artist Hubert Branz has created a dizzying series of works entitled X-planation. By taking aerial shots of airports that he collects through the use of the Internet, Branz digitally stitches these images together, creating a maze of paths. However, he adds yet another step to the process by mixing the perspectives of the shots. This adds a three-dimensional layer to the piece and the overall effect is a collage of head-spinning roads. It reminds me some of M.C. Escher's works.
