Roughly Translated As...Ubuntu - 3D virtual exhibtion by Gretchen Andrew

Roughly Translated As...Ubuntu

To coincide with Wikipedia's annual conference I’ve been asked to share how I manipulate the internet with my paintings.

University of Cape Town
July 18 - 22

In bringing me out to South Africa to talk about my art, Wikipedia and its partners are letting me define how / where my art is exhibited.

14 paintings on paper that i’ve programmed to manipulate search results for “Ubuntu,” which is the conference’s theme. Roughly translated Ubuntu means “humanity” but is also the name of computer operating system. By replacing the top search results for Ubuntu my paintings are literally putting culture/humanity/art over technology.

To include the Search Engine Art (live, manipulated search results) in an exhibition I’d just need an internet-connected screen.
