IMG 1984 is a web project that matches the first image from a Google Image Search to every word in George Orwell’s 1984. The site plays back each pairing in order for the entire length of the book. The work explores the relationship between text, image, and meaning in the original text. The Google Image Search affords the work an opportunity to juxtapose telling images from the internet devoid of context one word at a time.
