This work was influenced by online interactions in the comment sections of social media posts. Instead of gathering words from comments online, I asked one question to a variety of people in my community. After gathering responses, one of three colors were assigned to the words at random. Then, the images were exported and displayed on four separate televisions. Since the televisions run out of sync, the composition changes over time creating new collaborative sentences out of language.
