What do satellites see? Ingrid Burrington’s lenticular prints show data centres, air force bases and other politically sensitive sites as they are captured by high-resolution aerial photography. The lenticulars show two versions of a single location at different points in time, to reveal the instability and shifting realities of satellite views. We see aerial views before and after a data centre’s construction, a building‘s details camouflaged by filters, and whole locations blurred out in censorship.
