The Guardian’s Google Street View specialist Halley Docherty has released an incredible new series of images that bring together famous album covers and their modern-day settings. Docherty uses Google Street View to pinpoint the exact location that’s depicted in the album cover, and then meticulously lines up the Street View scene and the album cover so that they blend together seamlessly. The series features albums by iconic artists like Bob Dylan, Oasis, the Beatles, and Led Zeppelin. http://dlvr.it/5Qqgp5

In 2004, Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman embarked on the photographic quest of a lifetime: to document the oldest living things in the world. Now, a decade later, Sussman is still going strong, her journey having taken her to some of the harshest and most remote landscapes, from the Mojave Desert to Antarctica to the Australian Outback. Her unique portraits reveal the living history of our planet as well as what we stand to lose in the future, thanks to climate change and human encroachment. http://dlvr.it/5QKq2k

When French illustrator Thomas Lamadieu looks upward, he sees the world differently than most. In his imaginative mind, he perceives the odd formations created by tall buildings as the basis for playful illustrations. To create his Sky Art, the artist first photographs odd perspectives of various urban skylines. He then fills in the strange shapes between building and atmosphere with whimsical drawings in Microsoft Paint. http://dlvr.it/5QKTJ3

In Miguel Chevalier’s installation Magic Carpets, the French artist transformed a former church space into a mesmerizing spectacle of sound and lights. He used digital technology to project a variety of multicolored light patterns and mosaics, inspired by Islamic art, across the floor. As viewers walked throughout the space, the interactive designs adjusted and changed in unpredictable movements to create a direct dialogue between individuals and the surrounding space. http://dlvr.it/5PQ0tl
