This interesting art project consists of a computer speech to text loop that continually degrades over time. One machine reads text aloud that is alayzed by another computer which then speaks the text, while the next machine analyzes it and speaks the result as well. The result is printed out in real-time on a nearby printer to keep a record of the conversation. Also see Apple Talk by Jurg Lehni as a reference for this project.
Text to speech installation makes “telephone” seem easy
