Bible Stories as Seen From Heaven

The Bible according to Google Earth:

Scenes from the Bible have been imagined by countless artists over the centuries, but never quite like this. God’s Eye View portrays four key Biblical events as if captured by Google Earth.

God’s Eye View depicts Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark, and Moses parting the Red Sea as well as The Crucifixion. “We like to disorientate audiences a little with all our work. And with this piece we felt technology now allows events which may or may not have happened to be visualized and made to appear dramatically real,” say The Glue Society’s James Dive. “As a method of representation satellite photography is so trusted, it has been interesting to mess with that trust.”
