“Image Search Result for ‘trolling’ printed on various objects by online services”
2017
Print on leggings, neoprene laptop sleeve, toothbrush holder and soap dispenser set.

For our ongoing series, Image Search Result (2014–), each work produced is entirely outsourced to online custom printing services. We use search terms from our personal browsing history, and select the first image that the search engine yields for that term. We then upload it on various custom printing services. Typically the objects are delivered directly to the exhibition once they are produced. In this case, the objects will not be produced unless they are bid on and purchased.

This piece is part of #exstrange a live exhibition that uses eBay as a site for curatorial operation and artistic production.
