The Google Image Dictionary (2012)

'The Google Image Dictionary' is an perpetually changing online image bank, which is compiled completely from top searches on Google Images.

Full Description

Within the work 'The Google Image Dictionary', a picture from Google Images accompanies every word in the current English dictionary. The website displays the digitally selected images, which are accompanied by their reference word sequentially. The site refreshes every two minutes, and there are 60,0000 unrepeated entries in the most recently published English dictionary. It will take approximately 833 days to present every word. The piece is ephemeral in nature due to Google’s searches constantly changing due to trends and occurrences; it exists in a constant state of flux where no two viewings will ever be identical.
