The ScanOps project—an extension of Wilson’s video Workers Leaving the Googleplex—is based on Google Books images in which software distortions, the scanning site, and the hands of ScanOps employees are visible. Through varied analog presentations of these images, the technologies and processes used are emphasized. These re-materializations are treated as photography—taking the form of framed image-sculptures, compiled in a mobile book-sculpture, and presented in a performance-lecture.
