Keyword Intervention, Owen Mundy (US)
This work displays the most popular online queries by “scraping”1 reports from popular search engines. It reports what culture (those with access to computers) desire to know, their hopes and interests, in real time. It is a measuring device as well as a visualizer, but the display is not without conceptual relevance. The computer program reconfigures the queries into a starburst or mandala-like visualization referencing the hypnotizing worship of popular content and the most popular is found in the center, where similar to the use of mandala, we are one with god.
