: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :
In the last few weeks I’ve found that a lot of my friends & acquaintances from my high school are now living in Southern California. When I discovered that my girlfriend from 8th grade was living in Buena Park, California, I decided to make some renderings to celebrate the reconnection. While I don’t know any friends living in Beverly Hills, I know that many long to live there! I also know that most people know a bit more about Beverly Hills compared to Buena Park….I do, sorta.
The main geographic identifier in this rendering is Wilshire Blvd.- take a look at this google map to give yourself a better idea of location. I can tell that contained in the rendering is Beverly Hills City Hall, Spago, Rodeo Dr., and quite a few other places that people who live in the area know more about…maybe they can fill me in.
Since there is interesting arrangement of houses in the area and the confluence of State Highway 2, Wilshire Blvd, and Rexford Ave. makes a nice triangle, I decided to create two different versions of the source imagery- one used in this print (and the next one too) and one that is an “inverse”. To use the meta-mosaic terminology I came up with before, this map’s source imagery has the geographic truth in the SE corner and the inverse source imagery (yet to be used, after #2 is finished) has the geographic truth located in the NW corner. When #2 is finished, I am going to switch it up for comparison purposes, it should look cool :-)
