10x10? ('ten by ten') is an interactive exploration of the words and pictures that define the time. The result is an often moving, sometimes shocking, occasionally frivolous, but always fitting snapshot of our world. Every hour, 10x10 collects the 100 words and pictures that matter most on a global scale, and presents them as a single image, taken to encapsulate that moment in time. Over the course of days, months, and years, 10x10 leaves a trail of these hourly statements which, stitched together side by side, form a continuous patchwork tapestry of human life.

WordCount? is an artistic experiment in the way we use language. It presents the 86,800 most frequently used English words, ranked in order of commonality. Each word is scaled to reflect its frequency relative to the words that precede and follow it, giving a visual barometer of relevance. The larger the word, the more we use it. The smaller the word, the more uncommon it is.

Take a gander at the WordCount Conspiracy. Note the Apple and Microsoft results.

Now have a look at QueryCount.


WordCount tracks the way we use language. QueryCount tracks the way we use WordCount.

Launch it and check the top ranking words. Now find Microsoft in QueryCount.

The cybermind reveals all.

Nifty stuff.
