Eye Spy

Eye Spy is a chrome extension that replaces certain characters, words or combinations of characters and symbols (i.e., “oo”), with gifs of something related to the form or meaning of the original text. It is a nonsensical, humorous approach to planting “Easter eggs” across that Internet, in a way that disrupts the reading experience. Sometimes the gifs break the text, other times they make short visual narratives or images. In a sense, the replacement of text with images becomes almost like creating a new typeface with movements and visual language.

How many little things can you spy? This chrome extensions was developed and loaded as an extension to my personal Google chrome browser, but is not available for public use.

Designed and developed for Print to Screen, under the guidance of Ryan Waller from Other Means.

Special thanks to James Kao and Alice Meng for their coding help.
