a plexiglass data sculpture which visualizes 100 years of forward (online) thought. the top 100 terms for the phrase "in the future" on Google News, Google Blog & Google Scholar were categorized using the Dewey Decimal system, sorted by year & mapped onto a grid. holes were drilled into sheets of plexiglass whose sizes correspond to their frequency. for example, "war" is the biggest hole in 1945.

This is an interesting updated version of a situationist sculpture
made of glass which I think was called "100 days of walking in Paris" or something like that.
does anyone know know if it can be found on the web? I had no luck.

Hi, I'm one of the artists who made this piece. Would you mind posting a link to our websites? The piece was a collaboration between Casey Alt and Christopher O'Leary, and we are students in the Design|Media Arts department at UCLA.

Thanks!
