I’m Google (direct link) is an ongoing digital art project by Baltimore artist Dina Kelberman that documents digital patterns through non-artistic photography found on Google Image Search. When I first started scrolling through her Tumblr I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking at: frame after frame of airplanes pouring orange fire retardant on fires which slowly morphed into an orange kayak and then an orange bridge and on and on until I realized every single image shared a slight visual characteristic with the image before it. Via her artist statement:

I’m Google is an ongoing tumblr blog in which batches of images and videos that I cull from the internet are compiled into a long stream-of-consciousness. The batches move seamlessly from one subject to the next based on similarities in form, composition, color, and theme. [... ] I feel that my experience wandering through Google Image Search and YouTube hunting for obscure information and encountering unexpected results is a very common one. My blog serves as a visual representation of this phenomenon. This ability to endlessly drift from one topic to the next is the inherently fascinating quality that makes the internet so amazing.

I cannot urge you strongly enough to spend a few minutes scrolling through this impeccably curated collection of seemingly mundane photography that collectively creates something visually transcendent. (thnx, sara k!)

The art of street photography has always fascinated me. It’s such a strange mixture of skill, perseverance, editing, and even bravery, yet still relies on these incredible coincidences that result in once-in-a-lifetime photographs. One great resource for street photography is iN-PUBLiC, a collective of 21 photographers including Jesse Marlow, Matt Stuart, Nick Turpin, and Nils Jorgensen among many others. They have a fantastic blog (RSS) you should subscribe to and a wonderful picture of the month gallery that goes all the way back to December 2001. Have fun!
