Frank’s Monster chats Cleverbot

“In the future, words very well might not only be written to be read but rather to be shared, moved, and manipulated, sometimes by humans, more often by machines, providing us with an extraordinary opportunity to reconsider what writing is and to define new roles for the writer.” –Kenneth Goldsmith

In Frank’s Monster chats Cleverbot, portions of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel, Frankenstein, are pulled into dialogue with Cleverbot. A conversation between two creatures constructed from human inputs, this video explores the plasticity and malleability of digital language and its power to, quite literally, bring characters to life.
