Tangled in New Aesthetic
Warm gratitude to Aaron Geiger for publishing this interview on his journal butifandthat.com
and a special thank you to James Bridle for publishing Sound / Chair on his popular tumblr
and a brief note on @NArtBot for now: NArt Bot is a twitter bot that monitors the online discussion surrounding the New Aesthetic. It also participates in the discussion by reading the NA essays that have been published and generating new sentences out of it using a Markov algorithm. An update I’m about to implement today will help NArtBot learn from its interactions. From now onwards any Retweets of what it has said will ‘teach’ it to know that that choice of words had a positive outcome, and would feedback into the Markov algorithm. I don’t know what the outcome of this will be, we’ll have to wait and see!
