Google Street View

Jon Rafman (b. 1981) "is a Montreal-based artist, filmmaker and essayist. Mixing irony, humor and melancholy, Rafman’s work explores the paradoxes of modernity. 9-Eyes of Google Street View consists of selected images taken by the cameras atop the Google Street View vehicles that document the world’s roadways in a constant mission to organize the world’s information. While Street View's only goal is to capture the planet, mediated and easy for a viewer to peruse, Rafman’s intervention is one of an Internet curator. He searches through the vast records of fleeting moments, holding up a planet size mirror to ourselves, nature and our constructed world."–M+B Gallery

I've looked through the website and the photos are endlessly fascinating. They've been through my neighborhood twice, the first time they caught someone doing something no one should have to see. Who knew?
