Over the past decades, public space and architecture have changed drastically as a result of modern technology and its influence in gentrification. The precision of technology no longer requires authorship or a real person pulling the trigger in order to document reality. The more advanced technology becomes, the more in control investors become in ownership of urban planning, and the more out of control citizens are to their public spaces. In this case, New York and other large cities have been under constant artistic scrutiny as a result of these municipal changes that call for permanent control and are marked by capitalist trends.
