Can someone explain this? Is Rafman an artist who is reappropriating or is he the one who uses the camera?

Because some of those were already posted online and frankly, if you're not screen capturing a moving image, this is borderline stealing and crediting yourself.

It could be art, yes but I've seen those photos posted elsewhere already.

If he had screen captured a video, that's different. But if he just took the photos, blew them up, then... that's plagiarism.

dude is apparently an artist

he does other media as well - apparently this stuff is up in galleries. but yeah it's totally lifted.

I guess it's his choice which frames to appropriate and he's recontextualizing them by curating the series and blowing them up big time and putting them in a gallery. of course that might not fit everyone's description of 'art'...

shit... browsing around Google Street View all day and being a recognized as a respected artist for it... damn, I could be a modern day Picasso! If only I'd get off my ass and stop messing around at work all day.

edit: If this is art then the Amusing/Strange/Random Picture thread is the freaking Louvre.

edit x 2... still cool stuff though.

thats more like ....i dunno.... a compilation of research ...

google street view is seriously the shit, you dont even need to go on vacation, you can just pick somewhere and drive all over it and see it all thru street view. like last night I drove all over the cabot trail.

I love google street view, Its like the greatest invention ever.
