Every Environment is Text-Rich #4 (2003) is an interactive, web-based artwork that takes images from around the World and presents them in one frame. Viewers determine which images they would like to see layered on top of one another, but can only do so by their verbal description. They have no way of knowing what the images will look like, as the sources are live webcams, dependent on weather conditions and the time of day. Some cams change their positions, so even a selection of the same sources in quick succession may not lead to a similar combined image. The work allows the viewer to see the whole world at once, live.
