Beacon

March 2005

On January 1, 2005 an automated Beacon began broadcasting on the web. The Beacon continuously relays selected live web searches as they are being made around the world, presenting them back in series and at regular intervals. The Beacon has been instigated to act as a silent witness: a feedback loop providing a global snapshot of ourselves to ourselves in real-time.
