Emilio Vavarella

While Google tries to built a perfect world through its services Google Earth and Street View they are still one of the great sources to get every kind of glitches. Emilio Vavarella has discovered hundred of these errors and spent a lot of time traveling on street view mode to create The Google Trilogy, three different projects using the same tool. 

"The series of 100 digital photos called Report a Problem is the first part of the project, it is about the relationship between humans, power and technological errors. “Report a Problem” is the message that appears at the bottom of the Google Street View screen, which allows viewers to report a problem during the viewing of the place they are virtually visiting: missing censorship, wrong colors, random appearances. I traveled on Google Street View photographing all the “wrong landscapes” I encountered before others could report the problems and prompt the company to adjust the images. Common landscapes are transformed by Google’s unexpected technical errors into something new." - Emilio Vavarella.  See more;
