Summation of Life (Detail) –Part 1

Presented for the exhibition Same/Everything curated by Tom Smith at Firstdraft, 2016

I generated a series of poems (LOVE, GOD, YOLO, INTERNET LIFESTYLE and PERSONALITY PROFILE) with the help of automatic text prediction program SwiftKey Note. I recorded the poems and set the audio to stock footage found online, and a "zen" music track from YouTube. The result is uncanny: generated entirely with standardised algorithmic technologies, but at the same time, comforting for its seemingly familiar banality.
