Tumblr Of The Day: The Camera In The Mirror

MarioSantamaria-03

A few years ago Google launched the Google Art Project, as a way of providing virtual tours of gallery spaces. Now Barcelona-based artist Mario Santamaría has created a tumblr called The Camera In The Mirror where he collects images of the Google camera capturing itself in a mirror.

There’s something unsettling about the camera’s ghostly appearance; the images almost look like stills from a Kubrick film. More images below.

    Kubrick is spot on. Somebody should come up with an elaborate conspiracy theory that ties together Google’s image capture projects with the whole Kubrick-faked-moon-landing idea. Seems like perfect internet fodder.

    Would love to see this translated to a set of isolated motels,hostels,hotels and spaces across different countries.

    Have you seen this? It’s my favorite Google related art project – the images are frequently beautiful, disturbing and surreal. http://9-eyes.com/
