Search Engine

The Search Engine project began by conducting a series of image queries in Google using the phrase “no comment”. I chose this phrase for its potential variation within the query. The search engine became a place for aesthetic inquiry. The formal display of Google Image Search is gridded in such a way as to be reminiscent of Modernist painting and architecture. Disparate image results are coalesced through formal devices such as resizing and containment. The varied material investigations employed attempt to mimic common digital image manipulations, such as applying filters, superimposing and skewing.
