The Search for Time - Search Terms Over the Past Few Years


An other project by artist Martin J Callanan is looking at internet search terms and visualizes the amount of hits per term over the period of three years. The project is called text trends, its specialty is the lineup of terms. How do terms like sex and love compare in a graph? Check it out for your self, but surprising enough the up and down is at times surprising. Especially the terms related to time show an unexpected rhythm, e.g. see summer and winter.
