Xuan Ye: EveryLetterCyborg V1.3
Join us for a one-night public presentation of EveryLetterCyborg V1.3, a project completed by InterAccess's 2018 Digital Artist in Residence, Xuan Ye.
Xuan Ye's EveryLetterCyborg V1.3 is a web-based artwork that accepts input text, and translates it using an algorithm that sources language from Donna Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto. The translations will be visualized by the artist using webVR, and will be presented in the InterAccess's gallery in on December 13th, 2018, from 7-10pm.
To participate in the project, visit the artist's website (https://a.pureapparat.us/everylettercyborg/v1.3/), add text, and attend the public presentation to see it mapped in webVR!
