Une Semaine de Google
Une Semaine de Google is a project by artist (and sometimes We <3 collaborator) Joseph Gillette to recreate Max Ernst’s pamphlet series ‘Une Semaine de Bonte.’ From the artist:
“With Une Semaine de Bonte, Max Ernst constructed a masterpiece of surrealism and storytelling that paved the way for decades of exploration in collage and photomontage … I am recreating each of the original compositions individually, using only the top image results from specific keyword searches on Google Images. It’s a language exercise first: translating a visual language into keywords, which go through the Google algorithm to produce a set of images … What results is a new piece, much like the old one, that ends up making an entirely new statement”
We are very excited to be involved, if only in a small way, with this incredible project.
