Trust the satellite view

Parting the red sea

Great art piece that fuses our trust of imagery and ‘events/places’ in religious history.

As Geoff who works with me just said .. “… I honestly dont take any image for granted anymore. satellite, portraits of people, street scenes, anything. Absolutely anything can be faked convincingly in this day and age.”

“We like to disorientate audiences a little with all our work. And with this piece we felt technology now allows events which may or may not have happened to be visualized and made to appear dramatically real,” say The Glue Society’s James Dive. “As a method of representation satellite photography is so trusted, it has been interesting to mess with that trust.”

Hopefully they produce some more work soon.
