Searching... , 8 x 10 in. self-published books, 2010-ongoing  In 
my series of self-published books,  Searching... , I enter simple phrases, 
such as "Nature at its Best", "Treehugger", or "Heaven on Earth" into Google Image search. Selected images 
generated with this exact phrasing are then brought together in the book
 format, forming new relationships through ironic pairings. I’m interested in the multiple
interpretations that these phrases reveal through imagery, and in turn, how
that imagery informs, or defines our current society’s complex relationship with
the natural world. The images I retrieve are a
surprising representation of contemporary culture.
