ASCENDING TO OUTER SPACE TO FIND ANOTHER RACE, 2015

Vinyl on wall

108 inches x 48 inches

Influenced by Rorschach tests, FMRI’s, and infographics, this work explores the parallels between the Internet and neuronal networks—search engines and memory. Vadera completed a search for each word: ascending, to, outer, space, to, find, another, race. An image from each search was then downloaded, simplified, and combined with the others. The search term, file name, ip address, and country name for each image was then superimposed onto a world map, which is later removed, locating the places where the files were originally downloaded.
