Jenny Odell: creative cartographer

My ongoing obsession with Things Organized Neatly recently introduced me to what is likely to become another obsession: Jenny Odell’s satellite composites. Working entirely from imagery found using Google Earth, Odell chooses a theme like boats (above), silos, parking lots (below) or swimming pools and creates meticulously arranged mazes of those objects. She’s probably working as large as she can with the resources available to her as a student, but I would love to see a wall-sized version of some of these patterns.
