Postcards from Google Earth

“Last week I found some interesting works of Clement Valla such as “A Sequence of Lines Consecutively Traced by Five Hundred Individuals” and “Seed Drawings“. In his site you can see more of his conceptual and brillant works. I’ve loved his Bridges series, an amazing collection made from bridges and roads from Google Earth, I love its look, is a mix between three dimensional & two dimensional environments. I didn’t know if he had edited these pictures or they were just captured, so Clement tells us about this series; See more;

“The images are screenshots from Google Earth with basic color adjustments and cropping. 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, I think these strange mappings of the 2-dimensional and the 3-dimensional provide us with fabulous forms that are purely the result of algorithmic processes and not of human aesthetic decision making. They are artifacts worth preserving.”
After working as an architect and designer in the USA, France, and China, Clement Valla began using computers and digital technologies to explore formal, mathematical, linguistic and social systems. He studied the intersection between art and computer programming at the Rhode Island School of Design’s Digital+Media MFA program, focusing on issues of individual and massively collaborative authorship, and generative algorithms applied to systems of reproduction. He is interested in processes that produce unfamiliar artifacts and skew reality. Valla works within systems, applying a programmed brain that pushes problem-solving logic to irrational ends. He has collaborated with a number of artists and architects, and his work has been shown internationally. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.” Via

Ommwriter (a simple text editor)

http://www.vimeo.com/7670108

“Ommwriter is a humble attempt to recapture what technology has snatched away from us today: our capacity to concentrate.

Ommwriter is a simple text processor that firmly believes in making writing a pleasure once again, vindicating the close relationship between writer and paper. The more intimate the relation, the smoother the flow of inspiration.”

A great idea, executed beautifully – download it for free
