With so much focus on Google Street View privacy troubles, quite a few men and women have missed a complete subset of non-controversial but significantly a lot more strange Street View photos. Accidental recombinations and distortions on Street View photos have resulted in anything that could be mistaken for an art form.
Achitectural Splices: quite a few of the most interesting images happen exactly where two geomtries mix incorrectly. The result, nevertheless, just about suggests a hidden layer to the urban environment. The above Google Street View image is reminiscent of a Dada painting or conceptual urban sketch.
Finish of the World: when the Google Street View van finds a border the infill could be quite a few things – blue sky, white nothingness or some ambient color. As an alternative, a black void is inserted, suggesting Breeze Decor space or a vacuum on the other side. This tiny choice makes a significant difference.
Surreal Subtractions: some issues get reduce off in the splicing method, resulting in humorous but creepy omissions such as the head of the above individual. Probably the creeping white void to the left of the image is approaching to Breeze Decor erase him? Who knows!
High Contrasts: the subjectivity of photography in images like these above, where diverse lense angles and lighting situations make a radical contrast among components. This is a great reminder that any view is necessarily subjective, and the illusion of actual reality is relative.
Hybrid Objects: in some cases the Google Street View splicing benefits in a mutant object or car that seems virtually but not very believable. These stir the imagination, though they are clearly the outcome of programmatic errors. Is this accidental graphic artistry, or americana patriotic impression just an unfortunate computer Breeze Decor system glitch? That, of course, is up to the flag set viewer. Collections of surreal Google Street View blunders have appeared on Flickr and can be voted on at websites like MapMole.
