"My automatic correction knows what I mean, it understands me. Google rounds off my thoughts even when I’m speechless. I am
almost perfect. Thank you.
We rely on automation, automatic correction, and algorithms –
they are making our lives easier. They should. But what exactly are they doing, these algorithms to which we leave our digital flair, our first thoughts, wordings and our taste? If they are following rules it is a game. And we may cheat! We should.
LIMITS OF CONTrO3“7)uf@! plays a set of“rock-paper-scissors”
according to the rules of art. All of them. Including “well”.
In a music performance with lyrics and video we will work in a controlled & uncontrolled manner, in a way we’ll lose control and gain control: a shazam session with sampled music, looped cello and the inability of perfectly recreating and Google-made music."
