Text Trends

Greg at Serial Consign has written a review of my new work Text Trends

… In experiencing the piece, the viewer sits idly and watches animations plot out the ebb and flow (or lack thereof) of a series of search terms over the last four years. This all plays out matter-of-factly with all the passion of a market index or a readerboard… In viewing this piece, I found that it invoked a bit of anxiety and I felt a little helpless… It is not too often that you come across a data-based project that makes you step back and think about how you qualify and evaluate visualization. More importantly Text Trends abstracts the casual manner in which we receive, scan and process information and language on a daily basis.
