‘Planned Cities from Space’ - Wired.com
Our civilization never ceases to mesmerize, we seem to create the most complex of creations for the purpose of ‘efficiency’ or simply aesthetics.
Coming across this series of satellite images on Wired magazine puts a few things into perspective. For thousands of years we’ve evolved faster than any other species on Earth. We create cities that home millions with the ability to plan them so from space they appear to be artwork. Albeit some more so than others.
But with this we also see just how insignificant humans are in relation to the scale of Earth, yet we really know how to do some fucking damage.
