Report a Problem by Emilio Vavarella, 2012. 100 digital photographs. Variable dimension / One channel video projection; Variable duration. Colors. No audio

The series of 100 digital photos called Report a Problem is the first part of the project, The Google Trilogy, 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.
