Is That Roof a Masterpiece? Google Earth Says Yes


Sure your building's got central heat, a doorman and a killer lobby, but how artistic is the roof? For a handful of buildings in New York City, the answer is 'very.' In an effort to provide a little eye candy for those looking down from space, artist Molly Dilworth is converting grungy apartment rooftops into large-scale paintings designed to be viewed from a distance.

"I choose the brightest colors that can be seen from outer space, basically," Dilworth stated in an interview with the New York Daily News. "..."I've spent a lot of time thinking, 'What does painting mean in the digital age?'"
