Performance event in Iceland

18 April, 14:00 - 18:00 in Althyduhusid, a culture and art center in Siglufjordur.

I was invited to part-take in a one day programme of performance artists in the town of Siglufjordur, Iceland. I performed the piece 'Lesson 1 - 12: Siglufjordur'. The piece is performed by to laptops with the assistance of a laser printer. One laptop uses google search resault from the word Siglufjordur and reads out the first two lines (the once that appear on the google site before you click one of the links) from the first 12 resaults. The second laptop, uses Dictation and writes down what the other laptop was saying. The result is a page full of missunderstandings between the laptops that is then printed and given out to the audience.




This is the text that was read out by one laptop:
