Break on through to the other side

I've been thinking a lot about how I'm using google maps as a ready-made material for curating (art-making?), and therefore wondering about the materiality of this resource. How to consider the surface and is there a way to punch through it; to rupture the material? More on that later, but here's a strange IMAGE-HOLE I've found just off the coast of San Diego. Kind of like a portal of some sort.

Art from Space is an exploration of art-related phenomena that manifests in interesting ways on Google’s aerial maps. It is also an experiment in curatorial practice; collecting, presenting and contextualising items in ways that users can explore, free of curator-imposed framing and sequencing. This blog is Art from Space’s developmental musings made public, where items are introduced to the project in real time, rather than awaiting the grand unveiling of a completed exhibition. Specific locations of interest are highlighted in CAPS and linked to a map for further exploration. Visit the mother ship HERE.
