Internet Imperialism

INTERNET IMPERIALISM the intentional structuring of information to dominate the online definition or reputation of a person, place or idea. Through it I manipulate search results, swapping existing results for my paintings. This infliction of my personal work and subjects on universally returned search results is a warning of our trust in the internet’s authority while moving the internet to be less product focused.  

 
WHILE IN RESIDENCY at 18th Street Arts Center, Santa Monica I created new paintings about my experience of Bow, New Hampshire, growing up there and visiting as an adult. Through Internet Imperialism these paintings are coming to replace the stale and impersonal real estate listings that once represented it.  

My open studio connects my paintings and search engine art within an installation.  There is a very large Teddy Bear, named Checkers, who will be wearing a custom T-shirt.  Hope you can make it.  

xoxo G
