Google Street View's Shiny Balls

People often ask me, "What is it that makes your Google Street View Art so different, so appealing?"

Actually, no one asks me that, they just send me "Hey, look!" emails with links to Jon Rafman and Michael Wolf. But if they did ask me, I'd probably go off about Bergson and the flaneur's gaze and Deleuzian notions of cinematic time and the panoptic surveil--

"Hey, look! Shiny object! Want that!"

Seriously, chrome that bad boy in an edition of 5, please. I'll keep the AP.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
