@SLOW_CRAWL

Some of the news, all of the time. Always exactly one tweet unless something has gone wrong.


bot, 2014

@CIA_TXT

Tweeting excerpts from the “CIA Torture Report,” so you don’t have to read the whole thing at once.

House of Dust Simulator

Haiku by Robot

This is a twitter bot based on a poem I found in an issue of Highlights magazine. After my tweet of that image proved popular, I set out to make a bot that can generate these haiku indefinitely.


game, 2014

Flappy Bird Ground

My version of Flappy Bird. Parodic and pointless.

@EveryCruz

To avoid campaign financing restrictions, Ted Cruz’s campaign uploaded 15 hours of raw footage directly to Youtube. I downloaded it, used Pocketsphinx to transcribe it, and sorted that transcript alphabetically. Then I used Videogrep to create supercuts for each word, uploaded those to youtube, and set up a twitter bot to tweet links to each video. This task is now complete.


code, 2014

NaGraNoGenMo

The graphic novel I generated for NaNoGenMo 2014: The Something, The Thanksgiving, and The Nothing.

Electronic Literature Travel Tips

Considering a trip to the land of Electronic Literature? Here are some helpful tips for your journey. I created this by asking my students to write notes of advice and encouragement to future students. I then overlay that advice on travel-themed images pulled randomly from Flickr.


audio, 2015

A “cut out” of William S. Burroughs: I remixed a lecture by removing all the words. Prepared for a special issue of Enculturation edited by Casey Boyle and Jim Brown.

An Arthrogram

This is a “graphic novel” exploring every possible panel configuration given certain constraints. I self-published this with Lulu.com, and it is available for purchase from Amazon.


You can find more things by me — mostly broken or abandoned — in my github repository.
