About

For If the Eyes Can’t Touch (Blurred Modernism), Tim Tetzner took as his point of departure 32 images of modernist buildings that have been blurred in Google Street View on the basis of privacy and property rights. While concealing the architecture from public view, the blur also acts as a digital appendage, altering each building’s form and expanding it into a new entity, something inscrutable and uncanny. Paul Virilio has declared Google’s map service as the end of the world, but in this more distanced view, modernism’s central themes of transparency and reduction of ornament are transposed into an immersive present.
