The Glocal Project is a big contributive artwork. Two months before the launch of the project, we already have upwards of 8,000 submissions from more than 2,000 participants around the world.

One of the most challenging questions has been: how can we make sense of such a big collection of images?

These ‘similarity maps’ envision how an anthropologist might attempt to build relationships between images in the Glocal Pool.

Through image analysis technology, apiece image in the pool is assigned a ‘signature’, which can be though of as the image’s genome – the colours, composition, symmetry, etc. that define the image.

In these maps, a single image is linked to others that it is compositionally similar to. The further away from the center an image is, the less similar it is to the seed.
