Vive Google Maps, Vive L’Amour
hd video, 3’48”, 2018

Vive Google Maps, Vive L’Amour juxtaposes a walking sequence from Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-Liang’s Vive L’Amour (1994) with a real-time recreation on a similar walk following Google Maps. By contrasting the cityscape extracted from a fiction film and the all-pervading Google Maps, the video explores our perception of space, traces of collective memories, and the impact of documentation in the juxtaposition of the same location of different temporality presented as framed moving images.
