Part of the findnewfriends.exe series, this piece uses computer vision technologies to craft a multimedia experience whose main protagonist is a lonely bot searching for friends in embodied places. This interactive installation consists of two screens; one where the audience member can type in a search result and another where four videos are displayed in a grid. These videos are the top four hits on YouTube according to the given search term. Data from the four videos is then translated into sound. In this way, the four videos and the search prompt act as a score for a short piece “by” the computer.
