Artist Clement Valla collects Google Earth images, the ones we never see. He collects the moments before the 3D and aerial inputs match up, the algorithm at work.
“They are seams which reveal a new model of seeing and of representing our world – as dynamic, ever-changing data from a myriad of different sources – endlessly combined, constantly updated, creating a seamless illusion.”
The images are not manipulated in any way. And once the inputs resolve, the “broken” image disappears forever. To learn more and view additional images, visit the project site.
