The artist Shinseungback Kimyonghun work, “The God’s Script” (HERE) took a piece of a text and then matched each word from that text with the first image that came up in a Google Images search for that word. I decided to try that for the first stanza of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven”. Full text of the Raven is HERE. The result is like translating Poe’s text into modern pictures. Some of them are obvious, some of the pictures left me scratching my head. These search results will obviously change over time resulting in different pictures.
Edgar Allen Poe’s
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door-
Only this, and nothing more.”
