Nova Jiang’s Ideogenetic Machine is an interactive piece that allows participants to become characters in a generative comic book based on current events. I think it’s pretty cool because I’m pretty interested in storytelling and narrative art. With the audience being the characters, they get to choose how they would react to certain scenarios. The participants can also add their own dialogue to the comic afterwards. It would be cool if in addition to the interactivity, the dialogue was generative. I guess it makes it a little less interactive, but I think acting out a story generative story that responds to the participant it’s taking a photo of would be cool.
