Created for her MFA in design technology at San Francisco Art Institute, Jenny Odell’s Satellite Collection offers a new perspective on the world using Google’s omnipresent photography. Above, for example, is her assemblage of 125 swimming pools…

Noted on things magazine, The Satellite Collection is a series of six digital prints that Odell created by collaging cut-out imagery from Google Satellite. Each one is printed at 24″x24″.

Google, or at least the new ways of looking at the world that Google engenders, is certainly fostering some interesting creative projects. Odell’s series of prints contain something of the obsessive-compulsive, honing in on ‘types’ captured by the company’s satellite imagery, while Michael Wolff’s bizarre ‘found’ photography project, A Series of Unfortunate Events, has made fascinating use of Street View.
