—  Name, Title

British Artist Steve Oliver is best-known for his constructed photographic works which are made exclusively in-computer (no cameras), with material sourced from Internet searches. This editorial approach to image-making draws upon the possibilities presented by the image-search algorithm. Thematically, his practice circles issues of provenance, authenticity and ambiguous authorship, privacy and censorship. The extreme specificity of the work, rendered through prosaic subject matter generates a psychological tension; never quite narrative, nor symbolic.
