'Google search' is a crossfade between First Tasmanian tools and second Tasmanian tools.

This work speaks about the past colliding with now, indigenous vs non indigenous differences, and the contrasting relationships to tools.
It also raises questions about power, power tools, machine power and white man’s dubious power.

When we resarch on the internet, just before the apparition of the pictures, this checkerboard of colours arise very stealthily,
almost subliminally.
Also the images are more and more abstract and our story impalpable.
