Searching..., 8 x 10 in. self-published books, 2010-ongoing
In this series of self-published books I enter simple phrases, such as "Nature at its Best", "Treehugger", or "Heaven on Earth" into a Google Image search. Selected images generated with this exact phrasing are then brought together in the book format, forming new relationships through strategic pairings. I’m interested in the multiple interpretations that these phrases reveal through imagery, and in turn, how that imagery informs, or defines our current society’s complex relationship with the natural world. The images I retrieve are a surprising representation of contemporary culture.
