  • Execu&ng Things

  • Execu&on

    like poetry, the aesthe&c value of code lies in

    its execu+on, not simply its wriHen form (Cox, McLean and Ward, 2000, n.p)

  • Execu&on

    The code is interac&ng with the user, itself, its environment, and the systems it has access to via many mul&-layered and mediated interfaces that are available to it. Many of the components are predetermined, but through the combina&ons of interac&ons combined with the dynamism and unpredictability of live ac&on, the result is far from fixed as a whole.

    (Cox, McLean and Ward, 2004 p. 164)

  • If I wrote you a love leHer would you write back (and thousand of other ques&ons)

  • If I wrote you a love leHer would you write back (and thousand of other ques&ons)

    The network asks us If I wrote you a love leHer would you write back? in this work. Computa&onal code draws thousands of ques&ons from online maHer into the exhibi&on space. The ques&ons are gathered in real-&me from the social media site TwiHer and encoded to speech. Listening is a form of decoding, and in this work the machine constantly undergoes the process of edi&ng, encoding and decoding texts. What happens when wriHen texts of the network are converted to speech? How does it feel to listen to the ques&ons of a machine, when these ques&ons are our familiar tweets?

  • Execu&ng queries

  • A simplified model of Thousand Ques&ons

    Sohware: Thousand Ques&ons

    TwiHer

    Query: keywords = ?, EN, no=x, recent

    Tweets, who, &me, id.

    Voice + Visual

  • What cons&tutes unpredictability through execu&ng live queries?

  • 1. Random events

  • A thinking model of TwiHer random input

  • 2. Noise and unpredictability

  • Informa&on Theory

  • 3. Operators

  • Query

    Put simply: query=?+hello+-world

  • Rela&onal operators

    == > < != >=

  • 4. Inexecutable query

  • Inexecutable query

  • Unpredictable manifesta&on

    Sohware: Thousand Ques&ons

    TwiHer

    Query: keywords = ?, EN, no=x, recent

    Tweets, who, &me, id.

    Voice + Visual

  • how do code and language differ how are they similar?
