Turbulence Commission: “iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project)”

Turbulence Commission: iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) by Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Tim Perkis:

iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) is a social media mashup that uses the dynamic input of users to continuously rewrite a sonnet of William Shakespeare. The user phonetically rhymes a word or short phrase, which is added to the database of variations available to other users. For instance unhappily forsworn can be rhymed as so snappily untorn. Each time the page is loaded, a different selection of user-defined substitutions is used. A transposed midi version of “Lachrimae” or “Seven Tears,” by John Dowland (1563-1626), can be heard as well, with “perturbations” that increase as the sonnet text is modified. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “A More Subtle Perplex” by Ben Dean

Turbulence Commission: A More Subtle Perplex by Ben Dean [This is an open source project: you can contribute to the Perplex here]:

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.

Reorienting Narrative: E-lit as Psychogeography

[...] “In much of her work, writer/artist J. R. Carpenter fabricates hybrid places that are both “virtual” and attached to real world locales. Like Ernst’s bedroom, these online spaces contain objects whose appearance together makes sense only in the context of the artwork, in Carpenter’s case, multimedia stories. Combining intimate details, both autobiographical and appropriated, of characters’ lives with real-world maps and photo and video “documentation,” Carpenter’s works are narrative landscapes through which the reader meanders.” From Reorienting Narrative: E-lit as Psychogeography by Illya Szilak, Huffington Post.

“Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise” by Jason Nelson

Turbulence Commission: Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise by Jason Nelson [Needs speakers/headphones]:

Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise is an art/ poetry/ adventuring game, a playland for exploring our ever-present desire for constant and over-blown rewards. Our worlds (digital and breathing) are filled with needless and unearned praise, we are built to love exploding trophies for fifth place. This art/poetry game satisfies your compliment addiction by celebrating your walking/ jumping/ falling through strange and wondrous anatomical lands.

Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise is a 2013 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence website. It was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. Continue reading
