Join The–Dots



I chose to document the views from Google Earth. I have always been interested in exploring these views and finding new places, so I decided to document how these views have changed over the course of time.
In some places, you can look back as early as the 1940s and see just how that area has industrialised due to human activity. This concept of the ‘Anthropocene’ is fascinating to me. I have saved Google Earth screenshots from various places around the world, recording the date and the coordinates. I decided I would collate these into a book, to show the anthropocene taking effect. I created three small booklet style books, one for each category: water, earth and city. This will show how the anthropocene has impacted these three areas individually. Within each of the booklets I will show three different places for each category, with screenshots that are dated and labeled with the relevant coordinates.
