A Mesmerizing Music Video Created Using Google Street View Images From Around the World

Director Adam Chitayat created an incredible timelapse music video that he made entirely out of Google Street View images, using it to illustrate the Axel Bowman song “Out Sailing”.

I started crafting a project using entirely Google Maps Streetview Images. I viewed and downloaded the world from my desk, finding amazing spaces, altering, hand tracking and creating timelapses and shots.

Chitayat had compiled and edited the video while he was stuck at home due to COVID and “desperate for the outside world”. When he heard the Swedish electronic DJ’s (Axel Bowman) song, he knew that he made the video for a reason. Initially, he wasn’t sure what to do with his unique creation and it sat on his hard drive until he heard the song “Out Sailing”.

I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the material. Until I heard the latest album from Axel Boman. ..Here was a song from one of my favorite artists with such a propulsive and idealistic reaching out towards the wider world. Letting the wind take us, with love as the sail, a blur of adventure.

Chitayat took pictures from amazing places like Miniatur Wonderland in Hamburg, Germany, Grand Canyon and Burj Al Arab in United Arab Emirates.

Axl Bowman was thrilled with the work, the DJ wrote on Instagram:

Wonders of Google Street View

Earlier this week, peta pixel Reported on a British woman who was “shocked” after standing in the same spot nine years apart on Google Maps Street View.

More of Chiyat’s work can be found on his Instagram and website.
