Allow me to guide your attention to one of my works which is a little older now:
Stream of Consciousness.
Watch out this site pops up to fullscreen. There is a close button in the upper right corner.
The idea to this piece is to feed the computer with a lot of text from many different sources like philosophy, religion, quantum physics, politics, song lyrics, medicine etc. Then the machine analyses the information and recombines them new.
It is an improved version of the Monkey Typewriter Theory. So the results you see is not coming from a static textfile, but are created on the fly. Sometimes you think that you recognise some phrase, but suddenly it is in a completely different context. Sometimes it is simply stupid, but then there are these rare moments when you get a glimpse of universal wisdom.
The second use for this thing is to create blindtext for layout purposes.Posted at June 13, 2002 06:11 PM | Further reading
