Googly Earth | Head On Photo Festival

Googly Earth

Photographer's Name: 
Margeaux Walter

From my series 'Believe Me' resembling surveillance images one might find in Google Earth. Mimicking augmented realities, I am staging site-specific temporary installations in the environment that challenge our current post-fact world influenced by scripted and hyperbolic reality television, fake news, sensational journalism and virtual experiences. Shot in the Figure Eight Pools in NSW which are at risk of soon becoming completely submerged underwater, I posed figures in hats that look like googly eyes to reference emoji culture and how unique landscapes like this one are becoming no more than selfie-stations.

Festival Year:
