          Abstract

          You. Here. Now. is an interactive installation designed for gallery exhibition that explores ideas of temporal and locative contexts for ephemeral digital portraits and in so doing, translates viewers’ images into visual representations that are simultaneously both individual and collective.

          The work trawls the websites of selected news organisations and downloads al the visual imagery it comes across. These images are then sampled to provide a large number of fragments, each of which reflects the preoccupations and priorities of the news gathering organisations, but which are (because of their size) prevented from functioning iconically; each is a fragment, which will usually suggest a larger context, but which will almost never present its references fully formed. The fragments are all catalogued; stored, together with their average colour value in a constantly evolving database. This is the palette from which the work constructs its portraits.
