War or Peace – New ‘wall-clock poem’ by Zach Gage

war or piece

War or Peace is a ‘slow generative work’ by Zach Gage, the next in his exploration of wall-clock poems that he’s been referring to as Glaciers.

While the word on the website appears to be a single static word, the content of the site is actually generated once per day by a Google Trends search for the queries “war” and “peace”. On the day that more people search for peace than war, the site will say peace. As of this writing, and as Zach points out, it has not yet happened – maybe soon. | Zach Gage
