A travel log that documents a day's trip across the image-filled web. The log's contents were generated using a custom Chrome extension that looks for alt text - short descriptions that accompany many of the web's images. While alt text typically lives "behind the scenes", the log flips the concept inside-out: it brings the text to the surface, and reveals alt images only on inspection. This is the first part of our ongoing extension-based experiment, playing with forms and materials of the web.
