A short video of the ‘Google – Heads’ Installation in action. Each sculpture is casted from epoxy resin, hand painted and fitted with a battery and flashing RGB-LED light which represents the colour code of Google. The blinders reflect on Google’s practices to tilt the presented search results in favour of the niche and not of the most relevant one – creating filter bubbles (including ‘fake’ news). The tinted sunglasses represent Google’s engagement of censorship. The glass head represents the private and personal information shared by tech companies.
