“Postcards From Google Earth”: This Artist Finds Strange Beauty in Google’s Apocalyptic Glitches

Clement Valla was born in 1971 and lives and works in Brooklyn. He has trained as both an architect and designer. Valla collects screen shots from Google Earth showing various places photographed by satellite (roads, bridges and dams). Some structures that are difficult for software to interpret, give a distorted impression, closely embracing the Earth’s surface.

“Postcards from Google Earth” presents a computerised adaptation of the world highlighting the programme’s digital errors. Festival Images is displaying this series at Place Scanavin, on platforms of different levels, from which festival goers can appreciate the vertigo and paradoxes that this computerised vision of our Earth’s surface offers.
