Arena: A Short Film That Weaves Together Images of Man-Made Shapes Collected Through Google Maps

Arena is a short film by Ireland-based artist Páraic McGloughlin which explores the similarities of international roadways, farming infrastructure, and urban design. In the minute and a half work, McGloughlin presents thousands of aerial images collected from Google Maps to create a series of winding pathways and geometric shapes that snake across the screen.

there are some things that are so beautifully crafted and connected to the the complicated and ever-changing web that is humanity that they leave you on the verge of tears. They don’t make you want to cry because they’re sad; they make you want to cry because they’re beautiful and sad and happy and hopeful and angry and bitter and sweet and a thousand other emotions you need to express but can’t articulate. As odd as World of Tomorrow is, it falls squarely in this streaming gem category.

OZO captures stereoscopic 3D video through eight (8) synchronized global shutter sensors and spatial audio through eight (8) integrated microphones. Software built for OZO enables real-time 3D viewing, with an innovative playback solution that removes the need to pre-assemble a panoramic image ­­- a time-consuming process with solutions currently in the marketplace.

OZO’s filmed content can be published for commercially available VR viewing hardware such as head mounted displays (HMDs), with immersive, full 360-degree imaging and spatially accurate original sound. OZO also integrates into existing professional workflows and works with third-party tools, dramatically simplifying content production at all stages.
