Weltanschauung – Il mondo come

“Our ancient continents have been supplented by immaterial tele-continents constituted by unceasing data flows” Paul Virilio
Among the many Google Earth's features there's one in particular that, when activated, allows to visualize, chronologically layered, all the images stored from different satellite remote sensing agencies since 2001. “Human beings distance themselves from nature and arrange it in such a way that it can be mastered”, with these words Theodor Adorno defines the anthropological need to control reality. With the information revolution and the advent of the “society of the image”, the excess of representation of the earth's surface leads to a general telematic deterritorialization that overhangs and erases orography and frontiers, both national and natural borders. So, above the biosphere the infosphere unfolds: it's the new digital and virtual landscape crossed by information superhighways in which an ocean of images flows overwhelming every corner of the globe, because, in the words of Gunther Anders, if “in former times there were images in the world, now there is the world-in-image: the world as a wall of images that incessantly catch our gaze, incessantly covers the world”.
