500 letters

2010 - Interactive website, programming: Elias Heuninck, text editing: Emi Kodama, produced in collaboration with Voorkamer.

500 Letters is an artist text generator that draws on a database of sentences written in the all too characteristic vocabulary of artists’ statements. Supplied with a combination of keywords (for example irony, landscape, appropriation, semiotics etc.) and a specific medium, the work spews out a plausible artist’s statement. While this automatic biography generator is itself of course tinged with irony, some artists may find it a useful tool for generating their own texts. Visit the project here
