Visual research into the Google Image search engine. What does a typology of search terms look like and how do these image differ from our own surroundings? A Google image search for 'beach' results in a representation of a beach I am not familiar to in my own living environment. Still, when thinking of a beach the Google image including white sand and palm trees is my mental image. Are the images I consume becoming the reference to the thing instead of the thing itself that I find in my direct surroundings? The images of the search results are combined into a new image to show overlapping features and try to find a new kind of typology.
