Clement Valla's Google Earth Postcards Examine the Universal Texture of the Earth

Clement Valla's Google Earth Postcards Examine the Universal Texture of the Earth

Many have made art from Google Street View and Google Earth, but few have done as excellent of a job as Clement Valla. The Brooklyn-based artist studied the algorithmic mapping method of Google Earth in order to realize the universal texture presented by the app, as a result of texture stretching across a 3D space. Most of the structures he captures look unreal, and this is on purpose. Afterward, as you can imagine, he turns his discoveries into postcards.
