Artist Statement:


    The Googled Sculpture Series explores this concept of crowdsourced object presence by examining the three most popularly searched sculptures in western art history. Using only tourist photos culled from Google image search results for “Venus de Milo”, “Michelangelo David” and “Rodin Thinker”, flawed and incomplete likenesses are stitched together in photogrammetry software, rendered and 3D printed. The resulting jagged and mottled figure is a physical manifestation of web presence. Areas of high and low resolution speak to the focal points and perspectives frequently captured by visitors to icons of western sculpture.
