Renders explore the interpretive independence of our web browsing experience.

In each piece, a small image is enlarged. The four major web browsers handle this simple request differently.

The scaling is not lossy but rather gainful, as new color and dimensional data are supplied by the browser itself.

I'm interested in these visualizations because they expose the habitual, textural inclinations of browser software.

We view the web through these tools every day, and we become used to the personality of our vision within them.

Consider viewing this site in Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer.
