SEO Story by Auckland-based artist Luke Munn presents a materialised version of best practice search engine optimization techniques. Munn weaves together keywords from Dunedin tourism sites, local landmarks and wiki-entries into a narrative. The tale explores the use of language in a space of content-farms and adwords, enticing readings into mentally activating 'top of the mind' terms that Dunedin seeks to embody.
