This series (unofficially titled Dutch Landscape Paintings) consists of spliced screenshots of the Netherlands from Google Earth. The skewed perspective is a result of the various screen captures, and a painterly effect has been applied as a reference to early Dutch landscape painting.

Cubic elements have been added as a referent to Dutch shipping, which grew rapidly after independence from Spain (and arguably led, in part, to the formation of the Dutch landscape style).
