Every one of us sent at least one (c’moooon, who are we kidding here?) or tonnes of requests “in the cloud”, right? The info we sent in the cloud is not floating above our cute heads, you know, it is resting in some physical locations called Data Centers. Those huge buildings aren’t much to look at, states the VP of Google Data Centers, Joe Kava.
So they thought about putting some artists to work and providing the canvas for them. Said and done! They created the Data Center Mural Project: a partnership with artists to bring the magic from the inside to the outside.
The project started in Mayes County, Oklahoma where artist Jenny Odell came up with a mural that illustrates satellite Google Maps.
In Belgium, artist Oli-B designed some colorful clouds over the walls of St. Ghislain data center. He has painted clouds that include elements specific to the region, the data center and the people who run it.
