Graffiti@Google

When you search for images on Google, the search results from the World Wide Web are displayed in a grid. Google’s own algorithm determines these search results. By using Google’s algorithm, we have attempted to deliberately arrange the images, employing the search engine results as a canvas to create an artwork. Just as humankind made art on cave walls or paper, and graffiti artists “bomb” the city, we “bomb” Google. Stretching the limits of expression with this new media, we need to develop new tools and new skills to express ourselves. The artwork that results will slowly fade into the virtual world just as the art on cave walls or paper gradually deteriorates. And yet, we want to share this current moment with the world.
