In Crossings the controversial delivery of tar sands oil to Port Arthur, Texas is examined at ground level through the dispassionate eye of Google Street View, the automated documentarian of our nation’s roadways. The 180° diptychs compiled here are composed of opposing camera views from each intersection of the Keystone pipeline corridor with Google’s roving camera. This is a historical moment, captured incidentally, immediately accessible for a year or so, and then replaced at the next passing of the camera.
This segment explores Port Arthur, Texas beyond the pipeline’s terminus and along the shipping channels to the coast. This segment contains 27 crossings. Images are ordered north to south.
