Us, Aggregated 3.0 (2019)
Single channel color video with sound
The third and final work in the Us, Aggregated series builds off of the first and second thematically but takes the form of a video. Us, Aggregated 3.0 uses Google’s reverse-image search algorithms to hint at questions of power, community, and identity. The work presents an expanded collection of photos from the artist's family's personal collection set alongside images scraped from Google's library that have been algorithmically categorized as similar. Viewed together, the images evoke a sensation of community and similarity that belies the fact that the subjects are randomly assorted, a manufactured aggregation of “us”.
