Gui Machiavelli: I Will

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

One moment while I wrap my head around this – so I Will is a project by Gui Machiavelli that creates a visualisation of how thoughts influence actions and consequently, our future. Unpredictability is key to the final image, so using “data-bending techniques” (let us assume we know what this means), a person’s Twitter profile image is glitched with the coding of a raw tweet the user made with a prophetic “I will” prefix to their message. The resulting corrupted image works like a visual metaphor of the previously mentioned mutability of our intentions. And they look freaking cool.
