ISEA - 17.08.15Date: 17th August 2015
At ISEA 2015, David is showing The Ostrich Effect. This generative installation was built using commercial automated call-centre servers, customising their IVR (Interactive Voice Response) programs to broadcast and handle telephone campaigns. It explores the recursive loops that might occur in a hypothetical scenario. The computer-based conversation will never be resolved and continuously re-attempted.
