1. Turbulence.org Commission: "A More Subtle Perplex" by Ben Dean (2014)


    from Turbulence.org Added

    Screen-capture of "A More Subtle Perplex": A More Subtle Perplex is an experiment in quasi-linguistic formalism, in gibberish. Borrowing and inverting techniques from computer science and analytic linguistics, it blindly strives to produce the outer appearance of language – to be all form and no content. The Perplex produces synthetic languages, or at least their syntactic forms, by writing letters to you. The production of the text and the production of a given language are interdependent. Like most of Dean's work, this is a serious joke. A lonely robot, desperately seeking to communicate in an endless series of idiolects, or a play on the abstract aesthetics of non-representational painting for a conceptual artist. And, like most of his work, it is a point on a line, or a member of a set -- these examples are not the first, nor will they be the last iterations of the project to make excellent gibberish. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B6j8YZcIj7zNQ3hEYk9Md3o4bW8&usp=sharing The Perplex is an open source project: you can contribute to it here. https://github.com/bd/perplex
