Search Engine Vision "ISIS", Single Channel Video, 2016

6min 31sec, 1920 x 1080 HD


Search Engine Vision "ISIS" explores the semiotic shift of language as transient definitions that form organically Online. The first half of the piece starts with one thousand videos of the "Isis Goddess," as a result of a YouTube search. The search all ready contains the terrorist organization ISIS, however when the search is pure "ISIS" a new group of one thousand videos emerges that starts to deconstruct the Goddess ISIS semiotically and in form.
