Process Watch may be categorized as a college, but it isn't a typical one. A mess of Internet data, it offers a chaotic glimpse of the world in a matter of short hours. Comprised of mundane information from June 27, 2012, such as stock quotes, exchange rates and weather updates, the Process Watch collage is "a document to the reality of the moment and a product of the conditions that led to it," according to the artist.

Created by Estonia-born artist Katja Novitskova, the Process Watch collage is made up of a series of screenshots that were then reassembled in Photoshop. Novitskova writes, "Fundamentally unique occurrences of particular weather and economic conditions of the day were further intensified by freehand digital tool use."

Process Watch was created for Elise Lammer's curatorial project Hotel Palenque.
