GoogleGangers

Two Young Girls Sitting On A Banquette by Louise- Breslau

Well, my faithful friends have you ever heard that term before? I sure haven’t. My friend Penny and I went to the Gallery of Modern Art to see Modern Woman: Daughters and Lovers 1850 — 1918 | Drawings from the Musée d’Orsay, Paris

The collection was beautiful there were Renoir‘s, Toulouse Lautrec, DeGas etc . Before that we went to the other Art Gallery by mistake and saw  Contemporary Women : Australia. We were so glad we stumbled upon it. The work was unusual but creative, and we found it very interesting. Anyway to cut this long story short there was one exhibit where the woman had Googled everyone in the world who had posted online with the same name as hers, and then she put all their photographs  in a montage on the wall of the gallery. So they called them GoogleGangers which is a take on Doppelgangers.  What a clever idea I had never thought of that. Isn’t it amazing what creative people can think up. So if you have some spare time, and you are curious you could look up your own GoogleGangers.
