All That Day The

2020 Web based interactive text collage, dimensions variable.

Robert Smithson’s 1972 essay “The Spiral Jetty” is subjected to a series of manipulations: extraction of parts, contamination with an unrelated text (a passage from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of The Rings), processing with a Markov chain text generator, and finally exposure to audience interaction through a series of controls that allow the text to be split, spun and reflected on the page.

View and interact with it.

This piece was exhibited in 2020 as part of The Common Soil online exhibition, and in 2021 within The Unmoving show, for The Wrong Biennale.
