Finally–A Missenscene Update!
July 16, 2012
I’m back! After three months of working 12-hour days, I finally have time to update my blog! Boy, have I missed finding cool things to share with my readers and friends. I also have photos of new art, which I will be uploading soon! First things first- here is something neat I found today:
“The WhatWasThere project was inspired by the realization that we could leverage technology and the connections it facilitates to provide a new human experience of time and space – a virtual time machine of sorts that allows users to navigate familiar streets as they appeared in the past.
The premise is simple: provide a platform where anyone can easily upload a photograph with two straightforward tags to provide context: Location and Year. If enough people upload enough photographs in enough places, together we will weave together a photographic history of the world (or at least any place covered by Google Maps). So wherever you are in the world, take a moment to upload a photograph and contribute to history!”-From the What Was There website
The above photo was taken at 1st and Central. This is what the same location looks like today.
(Note- use the fade tool!)
