Irene Alvarado :: Peer Work Comments

(Reposting peer works comments as separate post instead of twitter post)

My favorite bot was probably Zach Rispoli’s Post Human Bot.¬†Aesthetically he did a beautiful job getting those body parts to look uncanny yet approachable. The colors really help – they’re funky but warm enough to really catch your eye.

Conceptually the idea is quite¬†interesting too. It’s a twitter bot that makes you wait to compose the whole body. Most bots out there published with one idea in mind yet the posts don’t necessarily combine into a bigger whole. It actually made me think of Borges’s story The Circular Ruins where a man dreams up another man body part by body part.
