Everyone knows that "Google" is now a verb, thanks to the wide use of the popular search engine with the same name. Net artist Valery Grancher, of "No Memory" (pictured) fame, is currently asking net surfers from around the world to help him create a work of "search art" via Google (and other search engine) tags and codes. If you want to be a net art collaborator, send your URL to Grancher via email at email@example.com The submitted projects will be published on a site called "Les pieces // The pieces." Grancher's work is in the collections of public institutions such as Fond National d'Art Contemporain, Paris, France: Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley, USA; La Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, Paris, France; and others.
