Google Data Center Mural Project

Every time you use a Google product or service, you are (probably unwittingly) engaging a Google Data Center, located in various suburbs throughout the world. As you might imagine, these Data Centers can take up a lot of space, but Google is embarking on a new initiative to beautify these otherwise-imposing structures with the Google Data Center Mural Project.

With the help of artists like Jenny Odell and Oli-B, the Google Data Center Mural Project is replacing those drab Data Center walls with colorful, street-art-inflected murals. You can see two of the completed works if you happen to be in Mayes County, Oklahoma or Saint-Ghislain, Belgium, but the project won’t be complete until all of Google’s Data Centers are sporting spiffy new murals.

You can see the Google Data Center Mural Project in action in the video below. And there’s even more information on the project available from Google right here.

Here’s the video:
