This is the project I did in the php course this semester. GoogleScape is a photo gallery based on images of the Netherlands, provided by Google Streetview. Basically, it is a photo exhibition curated by randomness, every minute the site refreshes itself and shows a new photograph. Check it out: GoogleScape

the silver bullet

the silver bullet from Sarah Janssen on Vimeo.

2-channel video installation, made for the exhibition 'technological singularity' at 'planetart', Amsterdam.
The title refers to human striving for perfection, invulnerability and immortality. The technological progress makes us wonder if we soon can create a man-like intelligent machine. By opposing found footage material from TV commercials on the left screen to self recorded material on the right, the work illustrates our hopes and fears regarding technology and the idea of the perfect human.
