Our nine-hour performance, held during the Transmediale Festival in Berlin at the Haus der Kulteren der Welt, occurred in parallel to the "Futurity Long Conversation", which was a nine hour lecture and debate series involving 21 speakers in an auditorium. There were two speakers on stage at a time, with one of them being swapped out for another every 20 minutes. On a separate stage at the opposite end of the HKW we had typists transcribing the words of all the artists, designers, and authors who were speaking, and sent the text streams to our analysis software. Our visualizations were projected on a screen behind the typists. The words of all the participants were matched to lexical databases, and sorted by topic, tense, and certitude. We displayed realtime statistics of all the speakers and used a dozen or so different transformational modes throughout the night. Read Less
