The Monetization of Language by Google Adwords (In Progress)

Hybrid publishing model made with the Google Adwords system where the amount of money leads the narrative of the book. This publishing model allows you to buy a re-written, most profitable version of Capital, A Critique of Political Economy by Karl Marx via LULU.


DISTRIBUTOR > MANUSCRIPT > PHP > MD > PDF > LULU API > PUBLICATION.

The original manuscript (+ a preset list of synonyms of all nouns) gets sent through a .PHP script which checks all current monetary values of the original words and fitting synonyms. The original text then gets edited into the most profitable words and is returned as a Markdown file and converted into a .PDF. The PDF is sent through the LULU API and gets published on LULU, ready to be bought for the current price.


The books that will be published on LULU can be seen as a mediator to monitor linguistic re-mediation of the book Capital within the digital atmosphere. In this way, the effects the Adwords system has on language has converted the text, written by a human in 1867, into its most current commercial and exploitable material.

Twitter Usernames Cherokee (11-'17)

RISO printed poster collecting all current (11-โ€™17) Twitter usernames that replaced the Roman alphabet with Cherokee lexicons.

Cherokee (Cherokee: Tsalagi Gawonihisdi) is a polysynthetic language and is invented by Sequoyah. His limited understanding of the Roman alphabet, may have aided him in the creation of the Cherokee syllabary which looks a lot like the Roman alphabet.

Cherokee uses a unique syllabary writing system which pronunciation is totally different. Therefore all twitter names have another meaning within the Cherokee language which are presented on the poster.

01.01.20

What kind of scenarios or agreements may arise if we can add our own (smart)contract and have influence on the behavior of our files? How can we re-architect the sharing behavior and fellowship of our current web? โ€จ

Arising from these questions came this speculative short film that shows, questions and tries to visualize the capabilities of smart contracts in the near future. In the film contracts are based on for example: geo-location, origin, DNA and income from future user and owner. In collaboration with Nikki Loef.
