The Art of Google’s Street View Camera – Pete Brook, Wired Magazine

The Kiss

With billions of images stitched together in the street-view matrix, it is highly unlikely two artists operating independently of one another would happen upon nine identical scenes. On the other hand, in the huge dataset that is GSV, it’s understandable that artists would gravitate towards scenes that appeal to human emotion once they are identified and permalinked.

I ‘met’ Martín Castillo Morales a few years back through Flickr, as I was intrigued by his pictures of women and interiors, and the casual ‘day in the life feel for his subject matter. His photography reminded me of the writing of Henry Miller, and I could not stop looking at his life through his photo stream. Martín Castillo Morales …

Star Slinger – “Mornin”

It’s rare that a one-word song title can accurately capture the feeling of the track it represents, but Star Slinger’s “Mornin'” does just that. This is the sound of the morning after, where befuddled notions of time and place slowly creep back into focus as you stumble out of bed on jellied legs. That passage back into the world is eased into shape by samples of the Staple Singers’ “Let’s Do It Again”, which begin …
