In The Shadow of Nowhere
Since the creation of the Google Maps service in 2005, the ability to explore and examine the world in which we live has never been so diverse. However, with this unrestricted access to the landscape, security measures and censorship have not taken long to be introduced. From October 2011 to April 2012, areas censored on Google Maps within The Netherlands and Hungary were visited and photographed; many of these including military and government installations. The borders separating these censored locations from the accessible landscape were of particular interest. Relations between the sites and their digital representations were examined in detail as well as the stark contrast between the digital and real world censorship.
