The Satellite Collection is a series of digital prints that Jenny Odell made by collaging cut-out imagery from Google Satellite:
125 American Swimming Pools
195 Cargo Ships, Barges, Motorboats, Yachts, Tankers,
Cruise Ships, Riverboats, Sailboats and Hospital Ships
An Overpass in Iowa, Repeated
81 Square Miles of the Great Salt Lake
(each square represents exactly one square mile of the lake)
Asked to create business cards for The University Veterinary Hospital in Israel, Saatchi & Saatchi Tel Aviv came up with transparent cards that look like miniature x-ray sheets, using the hospital’s stock of animal x-ray footage. To further personalise them, each doctor is represented by an x-ray image that corresponds to their specialism or preferred animal.
Just goes to show how brilliant even the most apparently boring pieces of work can be, if given the chance.
I really really want a business card this awesome. Not that I ever really have a reason to hand them out…
