Guthrie Lonergan

This model is from a dream i had. i dreamed it would be a home for a person in outer space. it would float out in space aimlessly. the person would get his oxygen from the tree and his food from different fruit and vegetable plants that he would plant before being sent into space. […]

Alterazioni Video

Alterazioni Video Work from I Would Prefer Not To. “The relationship, both passioned and obsessive, which the group developed in a daily engagement with the web provides the backdrop of this project. For months the artists lived on Google-images and on different search engines appropriating the experiences and memories of other users with whom they […]

Peter Happel Christian

Peter Happel Christian Work from Weights and Measures. “Weights & Measures is a non-linear exploration of social relationships with the natural world. Like a pendulum, our disconnect from nature swings from points of certainty to points of ambiguity on a daily basis. In this project, I regularly stage objects or situations to investigate notions of […]

Lorna Mills

Lorna Mills “…Lorna Mills is an artist who revels in the irreverent excesses of GIF culture, collecting and manipulating found GIFs from the most offensive and profane to the most abject and mundane. In her original GIF work, however, she creates contemplative animations that, unlike most other art GIFs, can be emotionally affecting. While Mills […]

Joe McKay

Joe McKay Work from his oeuvre. “… Operating at the edges of what we think this consumer technology should and should not do, McKay’s art leads us into the gap between expectation and evidence, challenging the viewer to consider what one sees and how the technology works. But unlike the Wizard of Oz behind his […]

It can be seen in Viewfinder, a demonstration of a photo-sharing or photo-placing system developed by a group of researchers and digital […]

Andreas Rutkauskas

Andreas Rutkauskas Work from While not necessarily representitive of his oeuvre,, is a fascinating foray into the contemporary experience of place and nature as dictated/informed by Google and GPS. The work is still very much in progress as Rutkauskas’ Wanderer residency at the Banff Centre continues, so I highly recommend following the work as […]

Jon Rafman

Jon Rafman Work from Google Street Views.  “Two years ago, Google sent out an army of hybrid electric automobiles, each one bearing nine cameras on a single pole. Armed with a GPS and three laser range scanners, this fleet of cars began an endless quest to photograph every highway and byway in the free world. […]

Meggan Gould

Meggan Gould Work from Verso. Also take a gander at her Go Ogle series of photographic averages. “My most recent work continues to probe the tension between what conventionally constitutes a picture space and the underlying factors, textual or otherwise, that work to reinforce and define that space. These stark images allow the viewer to […]

Hermann Zschiegner

Hermann Zschiegner Work from 34 Parking Lots. Zschiegner makes some incredibly interesting Google art (primarily Google image searches, etc, but tactile representations of Google info regardless). “This self-published booklet is the first in a series of artist books dealing with photography in the age of Google image search. This one pays homage to Ed Ruscha’s […]
