Holes in the Digital Sphere
Printed Screenshots of Google Street View over Morocco
Google Street View does not exist in Morocco, but with the release of the Google Street View App in the fall of 2015, users are able to capture and upload their own 360 degree street view images using their personal devices. If the user fails to capture the sky overhead, a black hole appears in the image. This piece shows all of the black holes in the digital Google Street View sky over Morocco, collected by taking screenshots while searching through all of the images. They are arranged in ascending order, so the smallest holes appear at one end of the line of images until the screenshot finally becomes entirely black. This references the gap between one's experience of a real place and one's experience of that place through digital representation.
