Preserving the Deranged Infrastructure of Google Earth

Via Vice: "Clement Valla is an artist and coder fascinated by the processes that 'produce unfamiliar artifacts and skew reality'. Not in the primary race, but in things like Google Earth, where he enjoys discovering aberrant digital phenomena before they get corrected by humans. He explains his pursuit in a recent Rhizome interview."

Movies from an Alternate Universe

"Awhile back a friend of mine forwarded me a site where an artist had made posters of films that, title wise, we were familiar with, but there was a slight difference; they were remade as if they belonged to a different era or a different genre, the name of the movie was there, but the actors were different, the style was different, and I loved the concept. So I went forward with this theme; what if movies we were all familiar with were made a different slice of time? Who would be in it? Who would direct it?"
These are fantastic. Via Collider.
