Google Earth provides fertile ground for artists who like to discover and appropriate quirky coincidences. These distorted satellite photos of bridges and valleys were found online by Clement Valla.
Here’s how he explains what we are seeing:
“The images are screenshots from Google Earth with basic color adjustment. 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.”
