talk mainstream (2009-2010)

talk mainstream is a Twitter Transitivity* project by Daniel Dugas exploring how language and spam works in the construction of knowledge. An Apple script downloads the Google Trends list information and a MAX patch, is set up to manufacture the tweets. Ironic comments rise out of the list of keywords people are searching as compiled by Google, and other lists of verbs, nouns, prepositions, adverbs and locales.

*Transitivity is a way of describing the relationship between participants and processes in the construction of clauses – basically, ‘who (or what) does what to whom (or what)’.
John Hartley (2002) Communication, Cultural and Media Studies – The Key Concepts, London, Routledge

The project ran from November 9 until December 15, 2009.
