first attempt at creating an interface that mines rss feeds for subversive and comforting words that are used regularly in contemporary society in which they become devoid of content. with this data i create a visual cutout (inspired by dada and william s burroughs) with two corresponding videos that are pixelated and layered on top of each other, one being comfort and the other being dissent. the pixelation is randomly deleted using an algorithm and reveals the video behind the one in the front creating a parallel stream of media to bombard the consumer. all of this is streaming of course creating a new way of consuming media content that is disseminated through our standard media channels. the hope of the project is to create a parallel method in consuming dissent and comfort where the ultimate recording device (the human being) begins to decipher the system it exists within. all of this begins to question the ubiquitous encryption of media prevalent in the system
We are trying to find a spontaneous way for the individual to be able to break away from syntactical structures and explore the contents of the human recording machine.
