vvvoyeur : redux

From June 11 — August 31, 2023
To celebrate the release of the book VVVoyeur, we host a video cut of over two hours in length compiling the two seasons of the process that led to the book. VVVoyeur is a video series of virtual travels  that took place in an alternate version of Google Street View between 2021 and 2022. The VVVoyeur photobook is constructed through a selection of images taken from each of the twenty episodes that make up the project. From these trips we navigate through the controversies surrounding the capture of images for a geolocation service, and especially, how ordinary people, amateurs deal with the possibility of recording their community, their surroundings, their personal landscapes. In VVVoyeur we are transported inside supermarkets, offices, dilapidated schools, to the top of broadcast antennas, to family reunions. We are the witnesses to the captured moments, we are complicit in the theft of these images.
