For someone living in a time of connectivity and one-click shopping -- where it can begin to seem like water simply comes from the tap, electricity from an outlet, and wifi from a router -- it can be all too easy to forget about the physical infrastructure that allows such an existence. Underlying the average day is an unseen dimension that includes undersea cables, fulfillment centers, cargo ships, substations, and more. My collections of infrastructural sites are meant as reminders of that dimension. Further, they're collected from Google satellite view, a perspective from which we can begin to see the fragility and contingency that circumscribe modern human existence.
Jenny Odell | See All Editions
Jenny Odell is a Bay Area native who mines imagery from online environments, most typically Google Maps, in an attempt to create candid portraits of humanity and its built environment. Because her practice exists at the intersection of research and aesthetics, Odell has often been compared to a natural scientist (specifically, a lepidopterist). Her work has been exhibited at the Google Maps Headquarters, Les Rencontres D'Arles, Arts Santa Monica, Fotomuseum Antwerpen, La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris, and East Wing Gallery in Dubai. It's also turned up in TIME Magazine's LightBox, The Atlantic, The Economist, WIRED, the NPR Picture Show, and Imagine Architecture (Gestalten, 2014). Odell teaches at Stanford University.
