What is a perfect body? is a project where I downloaded the 9 first pictures after posing the question “What is a perfect body?” to Google’s image search engine every day over the course of a year (2013-2014). I used my own computer with no alterations to the settings of the search engine while being logged in to my gmail account. The search results are therefore based on my continuous online activity, what is available on the internet and what other people have searched for.

Digital version

The exhibition showed the search results from the month of January, February and March (2013).
