Google Search / Google Burning

A wooden lookout, like the ones that can be found near borders, camps or in forests, are now build and placed in a museum context. A huge plastic funnel is blocking a clear sight... but in stead of the possibility of overlooking the area, Robbert&Frank have placed a hand painted version of the Google homepage in their funnel. Google, opening the window of the world and presenting endless (search) possibilities, -but- fixed and transformed in a stare analogue image: a never changing painting, impossible to activate. (In another version of this work, R&F F&R have put an endless videoloop of a burning Google homepage.)
