Airworld Jargon Machine

1999, From the Airworld series

The McCoys use software to scan the websites where the Airworld Banner Ads were displayed, collecting their texts and press releases for a database. The Airworld site extracts from this database to create unique texts for each visitor to the site. These texts presented a flood of corporate jargon. In addition, the Jargon Machine searches for images using the, then current, AltaVista image search and automatically assembled the results into a streaming video.
