hyponym garden

Hyponym Garden – web, code

This was my final project for Mark Callahan’s ARST 3860 Net Art course. It uses the Wordnik and Giphy APIs to let the user wander through imagery connected to language.

Pressing the right/left arrow keys moves you forward/backward along synonyms, pressing the up arrow moves you up to a “hypernym” (a more general term), and pressing the down arrow takes you down to a “hyponym” (a more specific term).

Give it a go here.
