Google search entries, as direct output from my brain speaking to the internet, approximate my train of thoughts and feelings better than anything else. Creating and watching a silent movie in which the script is entirely made up of my own Google search entries of this year is an out-of-world experience. The trips I planned, companies I wanted to work for, persons I was interested in, my concerns, my dreams. At one moment I feel ashamed of some of my searches, the next moment they make me proud because of where they lead.
Following my instructions here you can create your own Google Searches movie.
Update: The idea of this project has also been transformed into another form of art as part of the Infected Instructions group exhibit – instructional art in the legacy of Fluxus in the 60’s, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
