Internet Loom 1.0. A real-time browser extension I developed for Google Chrome. It manipulates the colors of web pages by pulling them from their original position toward a “sorted” position on the screen, where they are arranged according to the sum of their RGB values. The “gravity” of this effect can be dialed up or down.
It’s been said before that the colors of the Internet generally fall into a few basic categories: grayscale (Wikipedia), red (Pinterest, YouTube), yellow (Amazon), and blue, blue, and even more blue (Google, Facebook,
etc.). Do individual browsing sessions reflect this trend? How can we reframe Internet usage using color sorting?
