Description

Artist Statement
On a coding craft level "I am googable therefore I am" is coded to be a live aggregated feed, made with Beautiful Soup - a coding language mix of Python HTML/XML. This is programmed to hit the artists name each day to give a read out of amount of the google hits the name brings, in order to tell her she exists. Although available as live data feed - http://moddr.net/~sister0/cast/ The 'actual' artwork is not complete until fully installed.
