Everyday we stare at computer screens as we type out emails, write code, upload photos, watch videos, and push around pixels. Billions of pages of information splashed with text and images are accessed daily, composed of colored dots emanating from a screen connected to a computer connected to the Internet. Together, these clusters of colors visually display information that we consume and that we create, colors that make up the viewers’ virtual worlds.
What Color Is My Internet? is self portrait of the artist as an internet surfer. The book tells, in visual form, the story of 90 days of Greg Leuch’s browsing activity, from May 7 to August 5, 2015. Datas and visuals are extracted from mycolor.today (2015), an online project by the artist, visualizing users’ Internet browsing history by capturing the average pixel color of each web page they visit.
