Trace Project Description

One day I began receiving fan email expressing admiration for
my music. Being no musician, it quickly became apparent I had
intercepted fan email intended for another Daniel Bejar.
Googling my name I discovered there was indeed another
Daniel Bejar, who happened to be the singer and songwriter
from Vancouver who leads the band Destroyer. A Google Image
Search revealed we also shared a similar likeness.
“The Googlegänger” is a web-based search engine intervention
where I re-stage images of my Googlegänger culled from Google’s
Image Search engine.
These re-staged images are uploaded back onto the internet,
where they coexist alongside the original images.
