I’ve always been fascinated by analytics. Today of course, they are all the rage. Every Fortune 500 company or sports team or university has a staff full of statisticians. Google simply plugs in a word or phrase and gives you the analytics.
I call these Google search pieces “one man analytics”. Instead of plugging into the information vortex of the web it’s plugged into my melon shaped dome. My choices are not made purely by the numbers. I select images and make choices that are compositional, satirical, comical, topical, and sometimes literal. The photos, memes, quotes and sale products are collaged together to surmise a singular subject.
The internet is a vast wasteland of information. A vacuum built to destroy artful premise and create a void of all specifications. I’m trying to harness some of that random beauty. I’m painting with data. When sifting through and compiling, finding a semblance and compositional value, is done on the spot. These are made from doing the same thing everyone does all day on google.
