The artist takes image capture from Google Street View and touches them up to create these haunting portraits of tucked away places. Among other things, it is a tacit statement on the ubiquity of photography, via a pervasive robotic surveyor’s eye.
in search of enchanted and remote lands typically only reserved for the eyes of it’s inhabitants, but now are captured on camera by the automated and aesthetically-neutered google street view cars that linger.
The artist’s peculiar syntax and, perhaps, broken tense excite me. I wonder if he is not a native English speaker or if he is affecting a charming, bohemian pastiche to suit the nostalgia of his subject.
