Soundbook by Alyssa Aska

This project was realized as part of the CODES. in/human | un/natural project, and explores the difference between human imagination and search/keyword logic. Users are able to enter a text adventure with descriptions of sounds and locations, but with much of the details left up to the imagination. The user is encouraged to, during the game, imagine all of the things they see and hear as they progress through a „choose your own adventure“ story. At the end, they are instructed to describe what they see and hear. Their human | natural description is used as impetus then to retrieve a Youtube video, and the user is presented with the in/human | un/natural result of the search. All of these search results are then collected to form a playlist, which is the soundbook.
