Super Google Clouds

Super Google Clouds is a combination of an Installation and a website.
The work was created for the Copy Companion Club, who is a friends’ club, copying each other inspired by Creative Commons. Djeff’s Super Google Clouds is a copy-slash-homage to Cory Arcangel’s work “Super Mario Clouds” (2002). Arcangel famously modified a Nintendo Super Mario Bros cartridge to remove all graphics except for the game’s iconic blue sky and semi-pixelated clouds. Super Google Clouds visually mimics the blue sky and laterally-floating clouds of Arcangel’s piece, but the images themselves are sourced from a standard Google search of “blue sky” and “clouds.” Djeff presents this artwork as an installation combined with a website collecting images found on Google on which the audience can surf via a dedicated WiFi network.
