warorpeace.net is a slow generative work, the next in my exploration of wall-clock poems that I've been calling Glaciers.

While warorpeace.net appears to be a single static word, the content of the site is actually generated once per day by pitting Google Trends searches for the queries "war" and "peace" against eachother.

On the day that more people search for peace than war, the site will say peace.
As of this writing, that has never happened, but the work awaits the day it does.

Most of the time we only find what we're looking for.
