Technology and arts have much in common where both involve experimentation, require understanding how ideas and mediums blend and impact their audience, and seek to impart knowledge and inspire through their creations.
Being one of the most successful technological enterprises in the world, Google has been leading the development of the virtual world ever since internet has become popular.
