Full Description

I am collecting these new typologies as a means of conservation - as Google Earth improves its 3D models, its terrain, and its satellite imagery, these strange, surrealist depictions of our built environment and its relation to the natural landscape will disappear in favor of better illusionistic imagery. However, these strange mappings of the 2-dimensional and the 3-dimensional provide us with fabulous unintended forms. They are artifacts worth preserving.
