GOOGLE IMAGE ESSENCE: MALEWICH, KLEIN, ROTHKO

Permanent visualization of Googles ephemeral image loader.

Google image search on on a mobile phone shows placeholders in the split second before the images are loaded. The placeholder tiles’ colors are based on the color range of the image being loaded. The screenshots of Google color range placeholders during loading of search results for different artists, whose work is very strongly based on color, e.g. “mark rothko oeuvre”.
