Art Gallery

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" the algorithm we have attempted to deliberately arrange the images, to use the search engine results as a canvas to draw an art work. We draw on Google just as humankind has made art on cave walls or paper. And we bomb on Google as graffiti artists bomb on city because Google has become a huge infrastructure of the modern era. To go beyond the limitations of expression on this new media we need to develop new tools and new skills. The art work 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 moment with the world. From Tokyo, We bomb Google, Graffiti@Google.
