Look Out: Jon Rafman

Nacozari De Garcia – Montezuma, Sonora, Mexico
Google's influence on the art making community continues with the work of Jon Rafman. His project The Nine Eyes of Google Street View is an illuminating look at the global reach of Google's cameras and the surprising moments presented for voyeuristic viewing from the safety of our living rooms. It calls to mind Joan Fontcuberta's challenging Googlegrams, with both artists calling into question the ubiquity of image making in the 21st century.
