125 Swimming Pools

NAME: Satellite Collections

AUTHOR: Jenny Odell, an artist from San Francisco.

DESCRIPTION: Pools, nuclear cooling towers, stadiums viewed from above are as many marks of humanity on our planet. Jenny Odell created these digital prints where she put together similar structures on a same images. Our constructions taken out of context suddenly appear absurd and fragile.

AMUSEMENT RATE: Whether it’s Google Earth or Street View, the mapping system developed by Google has been a material of choice for many artists. These typologies of landscape elements are no exception and the most common structures find a new life when they are gathered on a same picture. The images might not contain any human figure but they are one of the most accurate portrait of our humanity we’ve seen in a while.
