Raspberry Pi computer using NLTK to read Women in Love by DH Lawrence and translate it into light on a matrix, Jan Hopkins (2018)

For #Interrupteur Jan will be bringing draw-bots and other devices to generate texts that retain the qualities of an original artefact made in real time, even as they are translated and reimagined in the digital realm. Join us in writing through a variety of digital interfaces to investigate how it is transformed through translation – what is lost and what may be gained. Jan Hopkins is a Sheffield based artist and writer interested in inter-medial translations, opaque communication, and the intersections between the digital and the handmade. A current project, Simstallation, is an experimental work that pushes and pulls objects through the computer screen producing undefined dimensions of technology and mind. Via these exploratory processes she attempts to collaborate with her simulated self.  Image: Raspberry Pi computer using NLTK to read Women in Love by DH Lawrence and translate it into light on a matrix, Jan Hopkins (2018)
