Turbulence.org Commission: "How to Look at Artist Networks" by Angie
Waller, with Jonathan Butterick


"How to Look at Artist Networks" allows you to search 60,280 names in the
Google Knowledge Graph to see if they are more closely connected to Marcel
Duchamp or Pablo Picasso. Fame has muddied their differences, but not too
long ago Duchamp and Picasso signified two distinct strains of artistic
practice. Pointing to the two of them as the progenitors of all
modern/post-modern art can introduce amusing, and hopefully enlightening,
associations: for instance, you might find yourself contemplating the
similarities between Sarah Palin's and Duchamp's practices.

"How to Look at Artist Networks" is a 2015 commission of New Radio and
Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible
with funds from the Jerome Foundation.


Angie Waller investigates collective longings that endure society's
technological advances. Her work combines data mining techniques and analog
materials. Her research series, "Unknown Unknowns" (titled after a Donald
Rumsfeld tautology), uses databases of web search engine traffic to uncover
questions that one may have never thought to ask oneself. Included in this
series is an eponymous email newsletter, a growing volume of auto-generated
romance novels entitled "Love Unknown," and text-based works on paper.
Angie received her B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago
and M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. Her work has
exhibited in museums, festivals and galleries internationally.
