Stemming from Henri Lefebvre’s trialectic systems of levels (global, urban, private) and fields (perceived, conceived, lived) of space, this visual essay studies satellite imagery of bodies of water as carriers of geopolitical, social, and cultural notions and relations. The orthophotographic imagery here serves as an illustrative interpretation of one aspect of these spatial theories and, perhaps more importantly, a sketch for a manifesto—or call to action—for their further employments in the spaces of the contemporary everyday, and beyond: for a critical re-reading of that same everyday as well as practices—bottomup and top-down alike—that shape it.
