From the virtual Berlin to Google maps: “Remap Berlin” spreads a thin geographical virus in Google Earth and deals with different levels of reality. The project introduces a series of b&w photographs shot in Twinity, a mirror world that reproduces a realistic 3D replica of Berlin.
“Remap Berlin, is a cultural virus capable of blurring the borderlines between the real world and the virtual universe (in this case, the replica of Berlin built on the Twinity mirror world). At the same time, though, it’s a pure photography project, the outcome of an exploration of a territory still under construction, a digital world whose borderlines are always temporary.” (Valentina Tanni, from “Maps and Legends. When Photography Met the Web” catalogue text)
