Text Trends takes the content generated by search queries, reduces this process to its essential elements: search terms vs. frequency searched over time, and presents this information in the form of a line graph. The animation plots the ebb and flow of a series of search terms generated over the last four years by internet users around the world; pairs of words such as "now" and "later" play out matter-of-factly, with all the passion of a market index.
