Videoboard

A small television sits out front, playing TV. Projected onto the wall directly behind is a live transformation of the television signal. In this version, we used a live feed from the SOAP channel, a non-stop source of American daytime soap operas and frighteningly loud commercials.

The transcript of the broadcast is turned into a three dimensional topography of colors, oscillating forms, and linguistic computations. The software watches TV, combing the transcript for emotional and thematic content.

The TV soundtrack is transformed into a multi-layer composition, alternating from lifeless robotic speech to cavernous melodic drones. The effect is a floating typographic life form - fed by, performed by, and eternally making sense of, the television.

The piece was shown at the Shanghai Biennale as well as Graphic Design: Now in Production.
