Invaded, by Hans Verhaegen

Online Art, Bookmarklet, April 2014.

The most well-known alien invasion scenarios involve the aliens landing on Earth, destroying or abducting people, fighting and defeating Earth’s military forces, and then destroying Earth’s major cities. Usually, the bulk of the story follows the battles between the invaders and Earth’s armies. However, not all alien invasion stories follow these plots.
In some accounts, the alien invaders will covertly subvert human society using disguises, shapechanging, creating conflict in humanity and let humans destroy themselves, or human allies.
In other depictions, the aliens score an overwhelming victory over humanity and the bulk of the story occurs after the aliens have taken over. Sometimes, the aliens do not come from space, but from another dimension.
So what would happen if aliens would take over your character set? Go ahead and see what a alien font invasion looks like:

  1. Drag this link: Invade to your favourites bar or (right click to) bookmark it.
  2. Go to any page online, let the page load and click on your new bookmark to see the invasion…
Notes: You don’t need to worry. You are not doing anything wrong here. You don’t break sites, you just invade them temporarily. It all happens in your browser, not on any server.

This well known bookmarklet trick might not work in older browsers on older operating systems. It probably won’t work brilliantly on mobile devices.
