Projects that never became full-fledged pieces, or experiments that fall somewhere between the sketchbook and finished works.
A decidedly effed Tumblr theme. Randomly places and rotates (nearly) all page elements. Like and reblog buttons are not placed with their posts allowing for chance-based social interaction. Interface is click-and-drag for remixing the layout (easier access to hidden items). Secret keyboard modes.
A book created algorithmically using custom software written in Python and Processing. J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1954 classic The Fellowship of the Ring was loaded word-by-word then organized into a two-dimensional grid. From a random start position in the grid, the “cursor” was moved up, down, left, or right and that word added to the new text. The process was repeated until 50,000 words was reached, the length of an average novel. Random commas, periods, paragraph breaks, and chapters were added along the way. Any sentence including a variation of the words “s/he said” was placed in quotes.
A variety of Twitter bots, some still "in the wild" and others shut down, creating algorithmic writing and interaction on Twitter.
