"This is one of the last images in a series of photographs I took from Google street view. They were taken with a sony cybershot or my phone camera initially from a computer laptop screen and later a tablet screen. The result are images layered with enlarged pixles and glitches, dust, smudges and reflections where the original subject matter, woman in streetview, has lost its coherence."
