The Drivers and the Cameras is the third part of The Google Trilogy: a project about the relationship between humans, power and technological errors.Each Google Street View car is equipped with a Dodeca 2360 camera with eleven lenses, capable of photographing 360 degrees. Afterwards the photos are assembled, creating a stereoscopic view, and an algorithm developed by Google automatically blurs the faces of people to protect the privacy of those accidentally portrayed. To create this series of photographs, I went looking for faces that had escaped Google Street View’s algorithm and the eleven portraits I isolated immortalize the drivers of the Google car. The driver becomes a sort of phantom power; he appears where he shouldn’t be and his presence escapes censorship. His face is the symbol of an error yet at the same time shows a human side and, perhaps, the limits of technological power.
