Futures Project at Centre for Living Arts

Visitors to the gallery are invited to stand under large sound domes and listen to quotes vocalized by text-to-speech software in real time while viewing a collection of posters generated from the same sources.
A simple program is used to search online for real-time content mentioning the word "future". The quoted text is then pulled to create a poster that will be printed once a day and mounted on the wall by CLA staff.

2x4 is part of the "Futures Project" exhibition at the Centre for the Living Arts in Mobile, Alabama. The exhibition features projects by visual artists and designers focusing on thematic ideas about the future. We were asked to consider this topic in relation to areas of communication, information, knowledge and wisdom. Our project, titled "Future Present," explores the transient state of communications and the transformation of information from one source to another. Through digital, visual and sound interactions we explore the ways that communication inherently shifts and transforms through these processes.
