Clement Valla’s work focuses on digital landscapes and conceptual forms. Best known for his distorted screenshots captured from Google Earth, Brooklyn-based Valla captures images that are surrealistic yet technically “real.” Finding mistakes in Google Earth algorithms that depict aerial views of melting freeways and contorted landscapes, Valla draws viewers’ focus to these aesthetically disconcerting digital spaces. “These collected images feel alien, because they are clearly an incorrect representation of the earth’s surface. And it is precisely because humans did not directly create these images that they are so fascinating,” said Valla.
