God’s Browser is a generative interactive installation that features a film whose every frame is an image taken from the Internet. God’s Browser is inspired by the basic principle of cinematic illusion: a rapid sequence of individual images creates an impression of continuous motion in the viewer. Besides an illusion, though, it is also a theft, as specially developed image recognition software sorts images available on the World Wide Web and places them in sequence. God’s Browser brings the ready-made creative process to video art: in the endless archive of the Internet, you can find virtually everything you could want. The soundtrack is also generated with image recognition software, which assigns similar notes to images that resemble each other. Visitors can influence the narrative by using a theremin connected to the installation.
