Collection of Google Earth Anomalies by Artist Clement Valla

Valla26

Rather than view these Google Earth distortions as glitches in the global mapping system’s algorithm, Brooklyn-based artist Clement Valla considers such occurrences integral to it — drawing our attention to the process rather than the illusion the software is designed to create. Check out more images from Valla’s collection, titled “Postcards From Google Earth”, below!

    This totally reminds me of Sim City 2000, when you try to build a road on an incline and messes up. Probably the same glitch. Maybe.

      Haha I remember this

  • Jason Thomas Carter

    So taking screenshots makes one an artist?

    • In this days if i collect something that i didn’t do, i can presume that i am an artist like this guy Clement Valla or Richard Price

    • Lorri A

      That’s what I was thinking, the 8th one is Golden Gate Bridge, and when I checked it on Google earth it was just fine! He’s not even that good at Photoshopping, LOL.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
