Ultimate Cheese Massage (100 Poèmes Surréalistes)
I read Breton's definition of Surrealism, aloud, in French to Google Voice when it expected to hear English. I repeated the same sentence a total of 100 times. Surprisingly, Google Voice generated 100 different English results. I then analyzed the English definitions to see what the software was able to pick up from the French readings.
The project helped define a moment in technological time as it was still possible to “trick” the software and yield something completely & consistently random.
The first four results are in the video excerpt below. To see the rest of the results & analysis click here.
