Aram Bartholl - Map

Public Intervention - 2006-2010

In Bartholl's 'Map' series he places a physical model of the virtual Google icon in the exact spot where Google Maps suggests the center of the city to be.

Punctuating the urban environment with symbols taken from the virtual world of the internet, Bartholl raises questions about our perception of a city and the influence of geolocation devices such as Google Maps.
