SpazioTempo

Abstract:
“SpazioTempo” harvests the world imagery of Google Streetview and re-proposes it in an irrational way: it substitutes the original orienting function with a random exploratory flow. It leverages on the fragments of Google’s representation of the world and creates an exploration that never ends.
