Internet comments have a long history and have developed their own form and aesthetics. For the composition I was interested in the peculiarities of these text comments and used this as a basis for the visual component. For this I collected a dataset of comments from various platforms and de- and re-structured them using typical data science methods like tf-idf to get a different view on the comments. I was also interested in using the aesthetics of a statistical and automatic digital analysis of the comments in a visual work.
The composition was done in OPENRNDR, SuperCollider, Ossia Score and a Modular Synthesizer, the data analysis was done in Python.
