Google (2004)

The google series is an exploration of how we interact with, search for, define, and integrate imagery into internet space. The google search engine has become a cultural icon in itself, a verb... and so I use it to flesh out icons, canonic cultural imagery, to explore the interplay between text and image. I have written a program that averages the first 60 results of a google image search--most images emerge as a hopeless jumble of pixels, but an elusive category retains a certain degree of clarity. All change over time, shifting in the space between links and clicks.
