Not Me: Collaboration and Co-production with Language Processing Systems
- Author(s): Twomey, Robert
- et al.
This paper explores the use of language processing technologies for interactive artwork and studio art production. I consider text in multiple roles: as data, as index, and as a medium for interaction. After describing initial efforts with a dysfunctional chatbot, I discuss my recent work with language processing in the creation of studio art objects, and speculate about the extension of those techniques to address the large corpora of personal media we accumulate online.
