  • lucie-lou

    omigoodness, totally amazing.

  • Jean-Luc Gallic

    WOW I didn’t even notice the first one was a rabbit until 5 minutes of looking at it! AMAZING!

  • and I didn’t notice the first one was a rabbit until Jean-Luc pointed it out!
    Really cool stuff, I must say.

  • Halina

    oh gosh.. this is absolutely wonderful!

  • natasha

    shes on my cool list

  • Joel

    sweet fancy moses, i love this!! especially the geese and sunset animationa…

  • Fantastic video, saw her cheerleader work some years ago. There is so much resources on google image et al that I am surprised that there are not thousands of artists doing similar work.

  • lapetitefaon

    wow, awesome, I really also love the Umbrico piece and her artist statement that reflects on how weird it is that we go online to look at the natural world instead of out of our window…oh, peculiar creatures we are!

  • Amazing. I love what this girl did.

  • Oli

    There are a tun of people making art from found images off the Internet and I imagine the number of artists doing this will grow as the web gets more saturated. The trend, Penolope Umbrico’s work included, is to just make a grid of found photos. I feel like I see this all the time. What I like about Cassandra’s work is that it does something much more than just call attention to the fact that those images are out there. It pushes the envelope by turning the photo’s she finds into something more. Umbrico’s sunsets just sit there… they are cool but even more static than Flicker itself. I love that Cassandra’s sunset is animated. It seems to take the viewer all over the world and through all these different peoples experience of it. Also, the rabbit blows me away. If it were just a grid of lightning photos, it would not be as interesting.

  • GEO

    i am completely obsessed with her work!

  • Vim

    her work is really great and i found it so interesting but i couldn’t watch the whole video, the interviewer is so irritating.

  • Kjelli

    Wow, I am amazed. Wow, I love this work. It made me feel like I was part of all the caught moments within the day of our sun. Keep of the great work you are truly an artist. I am glad to have seen your work.
    Thank you
