Taryn Simon and Aaron Schwartz

News January 16, 2013 7:35 am

In all of the sad news about Aaron Schwartz, my husband showed me this piece that he and Taryn Simon made together – Image Atlas. This project came through through Seven On Seven, where seven artists are paired with seven technologists to work together and develop something new. Image Atlas is really interesting, have you seen it? You put in a search term and your image results come up by geographical location. So, if you search ‘god,’ the images that come up in Spain are very different than what you will see in India.

I’m not sure if this makes the world feel bigger or much, much smaller.
