You like my like of your like of my status
installation for generative text and synthesized speech
(headphones recommended for above video)
"You like my like of your like of my status" is a sound and video installation work. Each screen follows a progressive generative text pattern of increasingly "liking" each others' "likes". The text is spoken using a real-time speech synthesis engine, creating an immersive sound and video experience that constantly changes, shifting in time, pitch, and rhythm. Those temporal and syntactic shifts are influenced by the historic "like" activity on my own Facebook account; thus the work also acts as a sonification and visualization of that data.
This video is an edited representation of the installation meant to demonstrate some of the variety that viewers will experience. During exhibition, the work is meant to run continuously, creating an ever changing piece that is never the same at any two moments.
