Art and/as Infrastructure.

I've finally managed to put pen to paper on the art of Jenny Odell. Odell culls structures from GoogleMaps and arranges them into collages. There are lovely and endlessly fascinating.

Long story short, I am putting Odell's work in conversation with Bruno Latour and his work at Sciences Po: the tripartite work of science, politics, and art necessary to address large, global problems. Odell's art performs just the kind of poltical work of attending to the missing nonhuman masses that we live alongside. 

More later.
