292 - Suburban Circuitry

Day 292. I installed an extension for Chrome called Earth View from Google Maps. It brings up a beautiful high-res satellite image of some random place on earth each time you open a new tab in Chrome. I like it. When I opened it tonight I was shown a picture of suburbia and it looked a lot like an electronic circuit board. That visual connection inspired this little grid of images.

What if this planet is really just one big giant organic computer? What if our movements on it are just an organic equivalent of electrons flowing through a circuit? What if the earth has been signed by Slartibartfast? What if Douglas Adams was right?
