Experience Jonah Brucker-Cohen’s WordPlay at the Interactive Show coming up June 10!
““WordPlay” is an interactive installation that allows people to create and publish novel stories by selecting individual words from a combination of word types. Using a similar method of the popular kid’s game, “Mad Libs”, WordPlay invites the public to choose from a selection of “nouns”, “verbs”, “adjectives”, and “adverbs” printed on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) cards and add them to system. WordPlay collects and visualizes each word by remixing a selection of text based quotes and facts. Once completed, the final story or passage is displayed on the screen allowing the public to read their stories. The resulting text is time stamped and encoded into a unique URL, and uploaded to the project’s website and Twitter where the public can read online what was created inside the exhibition space in realtime. Output from the project is here on the website: http://www.wordplay.xyz“
