tract (2003)

The aim of the website is to visualize the opposition among major ideologies (secular opposed to religious) coexisting in Turkey. The website examines the fundamental on-line publications of each group every day and looks for combinations of recurring phrases (i.e. political party names, commander names...) in the daily news. The data coming from the newspaper urls illustrates how repetitive the depictions of people are, by way of consistently using the same vocabulary and imagery, at all times, while representing the aprticular group. Based on this data, the computer automatically generates a screen where these recurrences are represented in quantity, with a set of graphical items, and attemps to figure out the social patterns/ideological tendencies on the daily network.
