\ˈgü-gəl\ Results *in progress

A microsite for the project is here carlagannis.com/googleResults and more information about what I’ve been doing along the way is below.

For over a year and a half I’ve been searching string phrases on Google and publishing them on social networks, primarily twitter, as a way to share a textual “snapshot” of my thoughts relative to the hive mind that exists within my “Googlesphere”.


I have a growing compilation of these searches in a public Google doc here.
The project is also being expressed through Vine and perfomance videos and laser engravings.

A few links to Vine videos of Google Image seaches: “fuck you Google”, “To thine clone self be true”, and “vine, vidi, vici”
