Society is gradually striving to become more visual and taking it to the next level is Wordless Web. The browser plug-in is an experiment in making all text from a website completely invisible with the click of a button. The project is by Ji Lee, while the coding is done by Cory Forsyth. The distorting of the website emphasizes the images; the lack of written context allows photos to speak in their "purest form."

The Wordless Web project is transforming the the website experience. One can re-imagine favourite sites in order to have a complete visually exchange. Each image can be interpreted to the viewer in an unforeseen manner. One could re-invent popular news stories or attempt a blog's DIY project with no written instructions. This project can provide further insight on how words can impact images.
