The internet has transformed the way we communicate, interact and perceive ourselves and others. Image Search presents the work of thirteen artists who use the internet as the primary source for reference and research in their image-making process. Open source information and images are being used by these artists to create work that addresses issues of identity, psychology, politics, the environment and history. Our collective visual culture is being transformed by the internet and artists as image-makers are not only using it as a new medium, they are transcending and subverting its potential. Often treated as a living organism, the internet’s evolution is constant and its impact immeasurable. These artists harness and exploit the nature of this new technology, which has become in a matter of a few decades, central to the way we interact.
