Airborne Fulfillment Center Patent: US9305280B1 | Jason Isolini

Airborne Fulfillment Center is a 360-degree collage by Jason Isolini. The work is inserted in the Google Maps universe using Google Business View, a tool businesses use to bring Google Maps users from their current locations into a business. This piece is virtually published at the location of the Amazon Fulfillment Center Warehouse in New York City and relates to the company’s first airborne delivery, questioning the extravagant employment of resources towards this type of customer convenience. The piece’s existence on Google Maps is precarious, to say the least, so Isolini has also documented the piece through Inpatium.
