When Jon Rafman trolled through the vast online pool of Google Street View images, taken by those bulky cameras on top of marauding Google cars, he found some alarming shots, which is exactly what he'd hoped for. He saw a van on fire in Rio de Janeiro, a tiger in a near-empty parking lot in Colorado, a baby crawling on the sidewalk outside a Gucci store in Taipei. These images, scaled up and framed, hang alongside others in Rafman's dual-location show “Mirror Site,” half of which is on view at International Art Objects and half at M+B Gallery. 612 N. Almont Drive, W. Hlywd; through June 23. (310) 550-0050, mbart.com. 6086 Comey Ave.; through June 9. (323) 965-2264, international.la.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 19. Continues through June 23, 2012
