Ingrid Burrington’s large-scale lenticular prints show politically and technologically significant sites – data centers, air bases, space stations, downlinks – captured by high-resolution aerial photography. The lenticulars show two versions of a single location at different points in time, to reveal the instability and shifting realities of satellite views. We see sites before and after data centers’ construction, building details camouflaged by filters, and whole locations blurred out in censorship. Google often takes a long time to upload recent satellite imagery of its data centers – and of this Council Bluffs, Iowa location, where construction began in 2014, in particular. Until 2016, Google Maps showed only this blurry field. The site may be home to one of Google’s cloud hosting server clusters.
