Jenny Odell

My friend and Afterzine creator Hamish pointed out these great images by artist Jenny Odell. Jenny’s medium in these images were actually Google Maps, oddly enough. What look like random shapes or abstract dots are actually manmade structures. The image at top is “Approximately 1,376 Grain Silos, Water Towers, and Other Cylindrical-Industrial Buildings”, the image below that are swimming pools, both a large and small, and the last is “195 Yachts, Cargo Ships, Tankers, Barges, Riverboats, Hospital Ships, Cruise Lines, Ferries, Military Ships, and Motorboats”. it’s amazing how great these random images look when thoughtfully placed together.
