HD application, infinite duration  


Description: Soft Soap is a program that gathers text in real-time from websites, chat rooms, comments, news feeds, and Wikipedia. It then

mixes them up to form statements and new phrases, speaking them aloud through an avatar when it chooses a piece of text. At this point it searches the text on YouTube and plays a video from its query, overlaid onto a generative ocean that is influenced by the data streaming in.


Exhibited at Focal Point Gallery, Southend.
