Horizon is an audio-visual performance which is based on an interactive program. This program allows users to enter keywords and it can use the result of images from Google's engine into a video in real-time. According to the keyword, the program will automatically adjust the position of images, positioning all of them in the centre of the screen. The images searched are the experiences and imagination of people from all walks of life that were uploaded into Google.
