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. Onizuka Air Force Station was built in 1960 to support early aerospace operations. Referred to locally as the “Blue Cube”, Onizuka was the longtime home of the Air Force Satellite Control Facility, which supported many renaissance satellite programs. The aerial views show the station before and after its demolition in 2014.
