The world is already so full of images, what’s the point of adding more ?
.urler serves, for a start, to show how vast an area they cover.

Basically, the idea is to attempt a poetical “assembling” of software, to work out a fast link between a speech recognition software and a search engine on Internet. The underlying logic is both efficient and deceptive, in as much as a semantic link can be established (rightly or wrongly) between randomly chosen sound indicators and their visual equivalents, producing relationships in the nature of metonymy, misinterpretation…
