Algorithmic Art History /// Feel the Algorithm

Algorithmic Art History is an online project based on the iterative use of Google Similar Images. Using a famous piece of art as a starter, Algorithmic Art History aims to poetically reveal how the algorithm works, recreating serendipity, and giving a sensation of the diversity of Internet content.

I gave a talk about Algorithmic Art History at Sud web 2015.

Algorithmic Art History appears in various press articles such as L'Œil de la Photographie / The Eye of the Photography. 

A portfolio of Algorithmic Art History has been published in the French art review Nichons-Nous Dans l'Internet, challenging the paper format to restitute the scrolling sensation.

Roadtrip To #NEWPALMYRA /// Awareness for Culture Heritage


Roadtrip to #NEWPALMYRA is an ongoing project where I explore Google Street View, to find the various location in the world called Palmyra. Travelling online to these places, I wanted to show that Palmyra is more than just a city in Syria - both antique and modern - it belongs to Culture and it is endangered.

If Palmyra is a part of our global cultural heritage, it's also a part our everyday lives. There are cities called Palmyra in almost all the States in the US, there is a street called Palmyra in some Busy-Megalopolis or some Lost-Somewhereshire, or a even an island, a camping area, or a zoo. To raise awareness everyone is invited to use #NEWPALMYRA on Instagram and on Twitter.
