Did I Ever Mention Listening Post?
If not, I really should have.
Listening Post was (in art world terms) an Installation, but the term installation has a lot of baggage for me. Media Experiment sounds pretty silly, too. Well, maybe you can tell me what it is: a bank of LCD screens display random snips of text from the Internet at various intervals, presenting it in one of a few different ways. One of them sounds like a men’s choir, where the top thirty words starting with a particular letter are recited. Seeing the Internet, an entity with which I have a more than passing familiarity, represented in a novel way - the cacophonous noise of fifty flamewars at once, presented as art - was something that remained with me.
I just found another site that plays with raw information in a similar way called We Feel Fine. Culled from your Earth Blogs, it collects and presents text strings about "feelings" in various novel, interactive ways.
