spambot is the successor of my piece maybe manifesto and the second of my trilogy to the subject of manifesto - propaganda - action. this second part will deal with the language in propaganda, commercials in tv and radio and internet-spam.
the term spambot can be seen as a synonym for my way of working: i collect information and transform it with digital tools and automatic text manipulators. spambot is a soundpoetry videoperformance. it uses quotes and gestures of political and commercial propaganda which are manipulated through digital sound and video effects. the soundpoetry component is half improvised with a microphone and electronic devices and the video is an experimental typographic video-poem. spambot is the attempt to liberate poetry from the pages of books and perform it live through image and sound.
spambot has already been performed in nottingham (uk), buffalo (usa), geneve (ch), paris (f), vienna, london (uk)
