Search by Image (Recursively, Transparent PNG, #1)
"Search by Image" is a series of algorithmic videos based on the automated execution of Google’s search by image functionality. The process of generating a video begins by entering an image into the reverse image search engine, which is designed to find identical copies of a given image. New images are automatically selected from the list of visually similar images, then re- entered into the same search engine, generating a recursive search process. "Search by Image (Recursively, Transparent PNG, #1)" begins with an empty image, "Search by Image (Recursively, Me)" with a photo of the artist.
