[ISEA2009] Artist Statement: Andrea Zapp – Google Gaze, 2009

Artist Statement

Mixed media, fabric, embroidery

A Textile Media Triptychon through which I look at the Internet and its social networks by employing more traditional artistic styles and craft. It reflects our existence in between a physical and digital world by interweaving off- and online spaces. Snapshots from Google Earth (The Rialto Bridge in Venice/Pont Neuf in Paris) and from Second Life (Manchester’s Big Wheel on Exchange Square) were printed onto fabric, additionally embroidered and stretched onto frames.

  • Andrea Zapp (D) teaches at Manchester Metropolitan University, School of Art, where she developed and runs the MA Creative Media Practice/Media Lab
