Crossreads let you read texts in alternative order

Very happy to announce a new project: Crossreads

Crossreads is about breaking linearity of narratives.
Firstly we segment a text or collection of texts into small pieces. Then we calculate several kinds of similarity among pieces. Finally, a web app allow crossreading of the original texts.
Those new created narratives (path through pieces of text) produce a different effect on brains reader that the usually expected by the autos in a traditional, linear reading.
Crossreads is presented today in the exhibition “THE LISTENING EYE
EUGENI BONET: SCREENS, PROJECTIONS, WRITINGS” at MACBA (Barcelona, Catalonia, EU)
