Feed/me is a performance and an installation in which the Facebook news feed is transformed into a playable musical instrument. Using algorithmic means the sound of the incoming videos is transformed and manipulated according to the actions of the user in the news feed as well as according to the notifications they receive, thus creating a recontextualised social network experience in which everyday offhand interactions change their meaning. The audience is welcome to participate either by interacting with the performer’s using their mobile devices or by browsing the modified news feed themselves.
Feed/me is a work in progress by Tomer Baruch in collaboration with Andrea Vogrig. It is supported by the Digital Culture Grant of the Stimularingsfonds (NL) and developed at Laboratory Spokane.
