Because sometimes looking is just plain fun! It's also worth thinking about how these groupings of earth images is working, some certainly before Google Earth and some even before the Apollo 17 astronauts caught a first glimpse. So, a combination of real and imagined images of this celestial body are collated and displayed in certain arrangements on paper. Such inquiry is testament to a persistent especially by those transfixed with cinema, in particular Hollywood (a space both filmed and lived), and to whom truth and fiction interact and synthesize continuously, infinitely.
This is a broad cross-section of earth images taken from movies of all kinds. Such an egalitarian approach yields both universal considerations (kinds of truths) as well tempting theories and assumptions/suspiciions about why which ones may be grouped with which ones. For somer reason, of all of them, I can't get Space Buddies out of my head. Elsewhere, Mallarme.
