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.
