You like my like of your like of my status

Installation for generative text and synthesized speech. ‘You like my like of your like of my status’ is a sound and video installation work. Each screen follows a progressive generative text pattern of increasingly ‘liking’ each others’ ‘likes’. The text is spoken using a real-time speech synthesis engine, creating an immersive sound and video experience that constantly changes, shifting in time, pitch, and rhythm. Those temporal and syntactic shifts are influenced by the historic ‘like’ activity on my own Facebook account; thus the work also acts as a sonification and visualization of that data.
