Did you mean.. Paris Hilton?

Thu 12 March 2009 17:27, Bas van den Beld

It's one of the terms most searched for world wide. And you're never really sure if the searchers means the city or the woman: Paris. The searches "Paris France" or "Paris Hilton" are subject to many discussions.

Tim Schwartz, an artist from San Diego US, used this in an art piece he produced two years ago. I never discovered it until recently. But here's how search got physical:

He made a piece measuring what people search on more: “paris hilton” or “paris france”. "The piece is attached via a network cable to the internet where it monitors news and search results for “paris hilton” and “paris france” and displays an average result in real-time." he says on his website. Brilliant.
