In the process of my process data is questioned and manipulated. Google is used to harvest facts, statistics, items of information, and filter it through a series of constants to produce a series of evolving images. The remainder is discarded. The resulting image can be anything, but it is still what the viewer is intended to see.
Since March of 2011 I have been using custom software to “collaborate” with Google.com to generate images defined by data, and based upon the Presidents on the United States of America. My interest was to take something concrete, recognizable, and on the surface actually quite banal and generate strong abstract, imperceptible images from what can best be described as a digital shadow.
