Search by Image

Inspired by Sebasian Schmieg's exhibition Search by Image at the Photographers' Gallery, London (until 29 January 2017), I've been doing image searches for some of my drawings. (Schmieg's show uses speeded up Google image searches so that visually similar views are shown almost as videos, merging and flipping through themes.) My own more laborious process threw up intriguing similarities such as these. Find Search by Image here. Have a go.
