NEWSHOUR via KQED: Artist rearranges the world with objects she mines from Google Maps

Jenny Odell first had an epiphany about the artistic possibilities of everyday web-based tools when she left Berkeley, California, and moved to San Francisco.

“I was getting lost a lot and spending a lot of time on Google Maps trying to figure out my environment,” Odell said. “Pretty soon, I realized that Google Maps could be used for artistic purposes as well as practical ones.”

“People thought I was weird, so I think they’d just kind of push away. Now that I have friends that actually, like, accept me and respect me, that are guys… I feel very comfortable. 

I feel like I’m definitely more boy-guy-ish, I guess you could say. I’m more… myself.”

NEWSHOUR ART BEAT: The Accidental History of Pride Anthems

The best pride anthems make people feel welcome and affirmed, Alex Douglas-Barrerra, who works as DJ Alex DB, said.

“People have their individual tastes, but I know for Pride I love a rallying cry. I think it’s important people feel wanted in the space when at a party, that their presence and their identity matter,” he said.

Be sure to check out Art Beat’s Spotify playlist, a selection of favorite pride anthems from DJ Alex DB, DJ Natty Boom, Morgan Tepper, Meagan Wood, Tommy Cornelius, Baronhawk, Bil Todd and Jason Lamphier:
