Hello! we are the Internet Imperialism team working on the What is Ubuntu search engine art project. We are a two-person international team located in LA and Bangladesh.
Internet Imperialism began when the artist Gretchen Andrew realized she could manipulate image results and thus have an impact on internet culture and content. From 2013 – 2017 Gretchen conducted all her Internet Imperialism alone but in 2018 brought on Paritosh Kumar Biswas to manage design, content operations, and strategy. Although they live thousands of miles apart Gretchen and Paritosh enjoy sharing photos of their families and cultures. Recently, Paritosh and his family had quite the laugh at Gretchen dressed in her Sari at a friend’s wedding and Gretchen enjoyed learning about Bangladeshi new year.
