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�.
