Artist Jenny Odell's medium of choice is Google, namely Google Earth and Google Street View.  In this series she explores the way that satellite photography - ie something inhuman and from very far away taking a picture - is actually very revealing about our humanity and the marks we humans have left on our planet.  See her site here for more: Jenny Odell  I just love how beautiful and fragile she makes the things she shows in this way.
