Visual Tangents (2005)


Sam Woolf


The concept behind this project is essentially that of a web-based forum that allows individuals to share their experiences and memories of Bristol with the online community. However this is a web-forum with a difference, as it contains within it a computer algorithm that will illustrate the texts left by users with 'tangentially related' automatically generated films.

The individual frames of these films are made up from images that have been 'found' by submitting the words from the texts entered by users into Google’s image search engine.
