Internet Swadesh About

This project takes the Swadesh List of words for a chosen language and displays the first GIS results for each word in a grid. Think of it as a glimpse of the underlying linguistic assumptions of the Internet. This is a conceptual piece of Internet Art authored by Ted Ollier at Mindhue Studio.

For ease of analysis, the grid used in creating the Internet Swadesh image can be found on this page.
