EveryLetterCyborg

2017 v1.1 web installation, v1.2 twitterbot (thermal printer, speakers, raspberry pi)

an interface (V 1.1) programmed according to Jackson Mac Low’s diastic algorithm as a method of non-intentional composition that can translate any textual input into a stream of words extracted from a source text, e.g. Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto. One significance of the diastic method is that the output is an adaptation of the source text while the input becomes invisible and transformed into something new. In the case of EveryLetterCyborg, the interface turns every letter into words that are within the discourse of the Cyborg Manifesto.
