Many things speak to as, either found in nature or created by human beings. However, art becomes art only when it's created by artist with the intention to affect the audience.

Yepp - agree - art is what an artist does.

Google maps isn't art because they were not intended as art photography, they were intended to be just maps.

Thats correct.

But ... I was not thinking about art ... rather about images that tells me something. And just as an astronomical image can tell me something ... so can google maps.

Although I wouldn't be surprised seeing these maps as part of a conceptual art project in a contemporary art gallery.

It has probably already been done.

I have to admit, that I like this image from the contest. However, this image will be much more effective as a big print on the wall.

Yepp ... that was how I projected it in my mind. On a wall ... and big.
