Video is composed of a series of digital images of paintings stored on the internet. It shows the algorithm behind the Google search engine analysing similarities in colour and features between individual works of art. This is a simulation of visual perception through mechanic vision, for which there is only form, but no content. Each sequence begins with a single oil painting from the 16th century and the following selection of images results from a sequence of images in the previous search.
