Crazy looking “street view” video made of satellite images, by charlie Behrens here….
Buildings and cities are being changed by algorithms, is its jumping off point.
This short film is intended to encourage a creative audience to seek out Kevin Slavin’s talk Those Algorithms Which Govern Our Lives. It employs an effect which takes place in Google Earth when its 3D street photography and 2D satellite imagery don’t register correctly. This glitch is applied as a metaphor for the way that our 21st century supercities are physically changing to suit the needs of computer algorithms rather than human employees.
The Kevin Slavin talk is here.
