Three Turk Dreams
Three text/software pieces I made in an electronic writing course taught by Judd Morrissey
as an attempt to probe, tease, analyze, and marvel at its crowdsourced subconscious.
- Dream 1 - The dreams of Mechanical Turk workers are rewoven into an eternal amber tangle, slipping in and out of intelligibility.
- Dream 2 - Feel around on your keyboard and try to reveal the narration of a dream, clumsily remembered and slowly put to type.
- Dream 3 - The Mechanical Turk workers are asked to analyze their own generated text as though they were dreams. This is meant to be the video component of a video/print installation, along with the printed text of dreams described by Mechanical Turk workers.
