Search Stories

Once upon a time humans told stories by painting on cave walls, showing plays in an amphitheater, pressing text on paper and shining light trough pieces of film. Today we tell our stories with Google.

‘Googling’ is part of everybody’s daily life, and millions of things are searched for and found every day. While searching seems so simple, fast and formal; when all your searches are connected you get a rather accurate sketch of your personality or social situation.

Check out some of the touching, funny and sad videos on the Search Stories video channel on Youtube, or make your own. I recommend watching Dog, Graduation and Brother and Sister.

If we have to believe Google, “Every search is a quest. Every quest is a story. These videos show that anyone can do anything when paired with the power of search.”

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
