Google Earth as Geospatial Surreal Art

"[Google Earth's] mostly automated system sometimes produces unexpected and wonderful artifacts. The bridges in this video are glitches that occur when the 2d satellite imagery and 3d terrain don’t line up quite right, or structures such as bridges are projected down onto the terrain below, creating fabulous and unintentional distortions. These images are like funhouse mirrors – strange illusions and reflections of the real." -Clement Valla
