28 Anomalous Google Earth Images

79 shares

Curator Clement Valla finds these 1 in a million Google Earth “glitches.” From Valla, “At first, I thought they were glitches, or errors in the algorithm, but looking closer I realized the situation was actually more interesting — these images are not glitches. They are the absolute logical result of the system. They are an edge condition—an anomaly within the system, a nonstandard, an outlier, even, but not an error. These jarring moments expose how Google Earth works, focusing our attention on the software. They reveal a new model of representation: not through indexical photographs but through automated data collection from a myriad of different sources constantly updated and endlessly combined to create a seamless illusion; Google Earth is a database disguised as a photographic representation.”

You will also like Google Street View capturing photos of prostitutes, naked people, drunkards, and the like.
