A twitter bot that I enjoyed was reverseocr. The bot selects a random word and then draws until the ocr library recognizes it as the given word. This process occurs four times a day.

The algorithm used is intriguing to me because it’s based on the probability of the cursor drawing shapes that are similar to letters; the algorithm is based on randomness. I’m interested in learning more about generativity and applying it to my own work (particularly film). I find this algorithm to be a good starting point at developing new, randomly genereated aesthetics/filters that can be applied to the video form.
