オスロを拠点に活動するアーティスト、スヴェイン・ファンナー・ヨハンソン(Sveinn Fannar Jóhannsson)による作品集。

本書はエドワード・ルシェ(Ed Ruscha)が1965年に出版した『Some Los Angeles Apartments』のリメイク作品である。ヨハンソンは本作でGoogleの粗く、ピントの合っていない写真を用いてルシェの作品を再演しており、現代においてより身近で、世界中に広がる「監視」というテーマを探求している。今日Googleが取り組むあらゆる事物の「記録」に対する熱狂は、ルシェの時代の写真の記録とは文字通り全く別の不快な性質を帯びている。



"Some Los Angeles Apartments is a remake of the original book by the American artist Ed Ruscha, published in 1965. The occasionally grainy and unfocused Google-pictures in Jóhannsson's book give, however, associations to a theme that in one sense has become all-pervasive and considerably more relevant today than in Ruscha's era: surveillance. Google's enthusiasm for documentation is today a part of a literally quite different, and more extensive and disagreeable, picture universe than the Ruscha-photographs were, spread as they were in a low quantity amongst art enthusiasts.”
