My work is steeped in the tradition of appropriating technologies for expressive and critical means. Over the past years I have developed the idea of technology support as a cultural endeavor. I understand my work as a supporting system; the kind of support technology really needs today. My work fuses analytical techniques of problem solving common to the engineering sciences with intuitive processes of problem making typical of art practice. My work focuses on new forms of authorship created in collaborations between machines and sentient beings.

    Amy and Klara's Friends must find speech acts and content befitting of synthetic systems. They must help us find out what machines, now that they have found speech, should really be telling us. Amy and Klara's Friends is a continuation and reaction to the Amy and Klara project (included as sample). This work, as its predecessor, brings synthetic languages into the realm of cultural intervention by means of moding and hacking commercial speech synthesis systems.
