Crowd (2016 - )
Google Street View
Crowd is an ongoing project composed of over 70 different cut out figures taken from Google Street View. Each figure was selected from virtually touring random locations on Google Street and manually cut out to assemble the composition. Unkown strangers from across the world are merged together to form a cohesive work. The intentionally blurred faces along side the digitized glitches and artifacts make each figure anonymous, yet their individuality remains through the visible signifiers including their bodies, clothing, and gesture at the time their photo was taken. The work also questions notions of privacy as well as free usage, resuage, and appropriation in the internet age. This project is ongoing.
