Web: Jonathan Zawada lets you wage war on Google Street View

Posted by James Cartwright,

Jonathan Zawada’s a ruddy genius – just look at what he’s done now! Not content simply making sensational graphic design and illustration with the occasional flourish of fine art thrown in for good measure, he’s now set his sights on the internet, making it an altogether more exciting place to spend time. His latest project sees him screwing about with Google Maps, taking that all-too familiar interface we rely on pretty much every day and turning it into a futuristic battleground by overlaying video game graphics on top of Street View. So you can march about the various landscapes of planet Earth and make like you’re a mechanised demon of destruction. If you need me, I’ll be in my battle-bot waging war on downtown Beijing.
