This scene of New York is rendered in multiple styles to represent the evolution of media we're experiencing, today. The environment around us is constantly changing, and so is the way we're interacting with it. New construction not only replacing the old but the two live side by side, enhancing and enriching our daily lives. During the event elements of the mural were updated. Watch for the following enhancements (from left to right):
- The runner's watch becomes a smart-watch.
- Google Maps style dining, shopping, lodging, and bar signs label buildings.
- A sapling grows into a tree.
- The classic taxi is replaced by a Google Driverless car.
- A construction site grows into a full building.
- A couple evolves, as they take their selfie–her 35mm camera is replaced by a smart-phone and she wears a pair of Google Glass. He is transformed into a whole new man.
- The World Trade Center is added to the skyline.
- And an old newspaper turns into a tablet.
Additionally, the signage in the mural was used for a Google Glass demonstration. The French words were live-translated directly off the mural!
