A commissioned piece for the 2016 WRIT LARGE Corpus Query Project, "Now More Than Ever" scoured the Corpus of Contemporary American English for instances of the phrase "now more than ever" and then displayed the results in both interactive and static versions for a gallery exhibition. Each data point is coded with a variety of metadata tags, which are used to algorithmically generate poetic connections and juxtapositions between phrases that are arranged into stanzas.

This work was shown along with original works from nine other UCSC artists and was a collaboration with linguistics PhD student Lauren McGarry.
