Jon Rafman

Rafman’s art explores the paradoxes of modernity by mixing irony, humour, and melancholy. As an artist using digital media, his work is informed by the rich potential provided by contemporary technology in its possibility for celebrating and critiquing contemporary experience. But as an artist, whose subject is the human experience, he aligns himself with the artist’s historical role in capturing the moral dimension in ambiguous contexts. His ongoing project 9-eyes is a good example, the online archive features peculiar images taken of Google street view, a contemporary medium. Have a look at 9-eyes for a lot more street views.
