Horse_ebooks Talker

2012

The Horse_ebooks Talker deals with the id of the internet in the form of Twitter spam-bot extraordinaire, Horse_ebooks. This Twitter account advertises its products, but avoids the spam filters by grabbing random snippets of text from across the internet to appear “alive” and in the process creates a compelling Dadaist tapestry of text from across the internet. This project tries to put these words back in the mouths of people by providing an augmented reality for anybody who looks at it, assigning them a random tweet to appear in a word balloon above their head.
