Project Description

A full wall of ‘Google Heads’, six in total. The heads are identical, the only thing changing is the colour of their backgrounds (blue, red, yellow, blue, green, red – which is the sequence of colours in the Google logo). This emphasizes the creation of distinct filter bubbles depending on your preferences when looking for information online.

The blinders prevent that one might see what happens around them and realise the illusion of being inside a bubble. The glasses represent Google’s practice of censorship, be it in countries like China or the alteration of search results concerning black-listed inquiries. Finally, the glass head represents the collection, use and trade of personal data.

Screen prints of this motive are available here and here.
