THIS PLACE DOESN'T EXIST
GMBB Level 3 11AM - 7PM
'This Place Doesn't Exist' is a project that looks into places with the navigation on Google Map street view, capturing the usual yet unseen and overlooked.
One mouse click followed by another, the journey unfolds and weaves the past, present and future of a place into stories questioning time, memory and perception. By challenging the materiality of digital images, the concept of photography and its relation to memory, the project sheds a different light on ways of seeing, witnessing and remembering.
