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. First constructed in 1954 to support operations at the nearby Volkel Air Base, De Peel now functions as a guided missile base for the Dutch army, who may have requested that satellite mapping companies camouflage the site.
