The images are created from screen shots taken on my phone. They show the convergence point of 3D imagery as viewed in a location mapping software and form a vanishing point where the digital world appears and disappears.
Although produced through the streams of everyday interactions, of trying to establish a location, the images are strikingly pertinent in depicting seams of the pixelated mesh that hovers overhead. What we seem to be examining are evidence of the joins of the illusion, tangible evidence, the invisible brought to its physical rendition.
“As such, the image is— to use yet another phrase of Walter Benjamin’s— without expression. It doesn’t represent reality. It is a fragment of the real world. It is a thing just like any other—a thing like you and me.”
– Hito Steyerl, The Wretched of the Screen, “A Thing Like You and Me”
