Postcards from Google Earth, Bridges, 2011

Google Earth, 4" x 6"

Contact Regarding Availability

The images are screenshots from Google Earth. They are glitches that occur when the 2d satellite imagery and 3d terrain don't line up quite right, or structures such as bridges get projected down onto the terrain below, creating fabulous and unintentional distortions. These images are like funhouse mirrors - strange illusions and reflections of the real.

I am also collecting these new typologies as a means of conservation - as Google Earth improves its 3d models, its terrain, and its satellite imagery, these strange,surrealist depictions will probably be replaced with better representations.
