“Cartography has been the domain for manifestations and negotiations of physical, political and symbolical properties of reality. Despite the obvious differences each era claims their maps to represent the world in the most adequate way. At the moment we are subjected to emergence of real-scale & time maps. Considerable amount of glitches and mistakes in Google Earth blends the intentional transformations with random, leveling the politically significant blur of a censored military base and an accidental broken highway to one effect. The resulting image-reality are distorted and noisy. The emerging chaotic grid suggests multidimensional reality, where tangible concepts and virtual things occupy the same time and space. It’s a world with pixelated censored terrains, broken highways, vertical tennis courts, ocean chessboards, accidental surveilance comedy, color glitches, ghost ships and defying the laws of gravity perspectives etc.” – Katja Novitskova
