My most recent project is based on René Magritte’s ‘Treachery of Images’ - you know, ‘this is not a pipe’ with a picture of a pipe above it?
Ok, fine, just go here. I’ll wait.
Good you’re back.
Well, I decided to turn it on its head - through a combination of randomly generated true statements. Random colors, random font icons, their paired names, and Microsoft’s translation api.
Plus there is a toggle, so now we can have it both ways - true statements or statements on representation - just as René intended.
- Microsoft Translator API,
- Yeoman (for the scaffolding)
[5/20/2016] Added the excellent natural language processing library NLP Compromise to tighten up the phrasing (e.g. when to use “a” vs “an” or how to conjugate verbs).
A demo of the project is avialable here
