Re: [PanoToolsNG] oh God they're using GSV already :-(
- Hello Keith,
You made your point ;-) and you are right, it is impossible to discuss if
something is art or not because Art is in the mind of the beholder.
I found the words that described the use of GSV for art funny and over the
top. When I read this kind of text (this author isn't unique for doing so) I
always have the feeling that those people are using there well choosen
combination of words to pimp there products up to a "higher level".
Making people accept this is for me real Art :-)

industry. Sometimes the descriptions really *are* the most creative
- montreal based artist jon rafman has been working on a series of
photographic pieces that use images
sourced from google�s street view map system. afman has selected odd and
intriguing still frames
captured by the car-mounted cameras google uses to take images of cities
with. each work is mounted
and blown up to larger scale for the final presentation. rafman isn�t the
original photographer but instead
searches through google street views, taking screenshots of images. he
explains, �the world captured by
google appears to be more truthful and more transparent because of the
weight accorded to external
reality, the perception of a neutral, unbiased recording, and even the
vastness of the project�.

And two times the worlds by Manoel de Oliveira. at the end of the movie.
