Below is a gif (videoized because of a color vs scale issue I was having) I made in 2013. It was included in a show in the summer of 2017 called EXAESSENTIALS. The curator described the piece this way: "<Loungin’> is part of a work series by [M] Eifler, where screenshots of a standardized simulation of our world, Google Earth, are equipped with gif-footage of natural phenomenons, such as cloud movements, thunderstorms or hurricanes, sunsets, the starry sky, and in this case a whale splashing into the ocean. By adding digital images that imply an innocently romantic character, Eifler intervenes in the creation of a calculated paradise and returns content which had been rejected or not mapped at all by Google."
