Mapping it out

Artist Richard Kolker works with digital sources for many of his projects, re-rendering places and scenes to create a different perspective on the familiar. His Streetview series tracks down iconic photographic and artistic locations and ‘snaps’ them using Google Streetview (e.g. the above ‘recreation’ of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s 1932 image of Paris). See also Michael Wolf’s Fuck You series, Jon Rafman’s ongoing (and frankly terrifying) 9-eyes project and a Street with a View, an early project by Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley.
