Le tour du monde en instantané (Around the world in an instant) consists of a series of pictures operating an objectification of the landscape of the Earth on a given Axis (Equator, Tropic of Capricorn, etc.). They are each obtained by the fusion of hundreds of screenshots taken all around the earth on each Axis.
This protocol, physically impossible, is here applied to Google Earth, offering images with a pictorial, diaphanous and analogical rendering. This abstractisation by movement applies too to the caption elements of Google Earth, causing the disappearance of variable data such as altitude or geographical position, letting only appear its logo and a ruler without measure and meaning.
These Tours du monde release Google Earth of its locating and figurative functions ; these landscapes, both abstract and close to reality, leave the software synthesis in favor of a meditative experience.
