The Halo Effect is a thirty minute long video performance of Googling 192 official member states of the United Nations. This is a practice of researching using a brand new computer, with no prior use in its data history, to see what Google would sugest for the result as the most popular term or description for each country. The term 'Halo Effect' is a cognitive bias whereby the perception of one trait is influenced by the perception of another trait.
This video opens up a conversation on how the media is stereotyping different countries, what it covers and what it does not and their manipulative nature.
