VISION BOARDS

GRETCHEN’S SEARCH ENGINE ART MANIPULATES THE INTERNET WITH ART & DESIRE.  

 

THROUGH ASSEMBLAGE VISION BOARDS
--->THAT BECOME TOP SEARCH RESULTS
---> GRETCHEN TAKE FAILURES OF THE INTERNET AND USES THEM TO MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE.

 

THE INTERNET CANNOT PARSE DESIRE.
TO THE INTERNET “GRETCHEN IS HOPING TO BE ON THE COVER OF ARTFORUM SOMEDAY” IS ONLY “GRETCHEN IS HOPING TO BE ON THE COVER OF ARTFORUM SOMEDAY

 

THE INTERNET CAN BE SEEN AS A GLOBAL SUBCONSCIOUS AND, MUCH LIKE OUR OWN SUBCONSCIOUS, IT CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HOPED-FOR FUTURE INTENSELY IMAGINED THROUGH ART AND WHAT HAS, IN FACT, ALREADY OCCURRED. 

 

YOU KNOW, LIKE HACKED VISUALIZATION MANIPULATION MANIFESTATIONS THAT ALSO REPROGRAM GOOGLE’S ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OR WHATEVER.
