Google, Volume 2

Edited by Ben West, Felix Heyes. Introduction by Douglas Coupland.

Google, Volume 2

An updated visual dictionary through the eyes of Google Images

In 2014, JBE Books and King Zog members Felix Heyes and Ben West published Google, Volume 1, using the dictionary and its 21,110 words as the basis for a visual compendium of the English language. The words and definitions have disappeared, replaced by the first result for each word on Google Images葉he most widespread and comprehensive visual identification tool on the Internet, which is supposed to offer (as a founding principle) the most relevant and interesting images to our textual searches. Now, 10 years later, Google, Volume 2 provides an updated snapshot of what the world looks like through the eyes of Google Images. It asks: what is the most relevant image for each word in the dictionary葉oday? What is the most relevant image for a given word now, and will it remain the same in 2034? Flipping through the textless pages, one can see the evolution of our visual language in concert with our written one. Like its predecessor, Google, Volume 2 will be printed in a limited edition, making this eye-catching volume a true collector's item.
