Daniel Bejar/Destroyer (The Googlegänger), 2011

search engine intervention, digital prints, Dimensions Variable


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 a rock star of the band Destroyer. A

Google Image Search revealed we also shared a similar likeness,

and it also revealed the majority of returned image results are of

my Googlegänger the rock star.

“Daniel Bejar/Destroyer (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 the

re-staged images appear alongside the original images.
