About the Book
This book is the third in a series of artist books dealing with photography in the age of Google image search. With an obvious nod to the work of artists like Hiroshi Sugimoto and Vija Celmins this book explores the white noise pattern of ocean waves.
Using popular web mapping services like Google Maps, TerraServer and Bing Maps I took screenshots of the Long Island shoreline. These areal photographs could be defined as “leftover” information on the periphery of useful satellite images for mapping purposes.
