LIGHT STORIES is an interactive installation driven by computer algorithms, the internet, and participating performers. Within the A-frame shelter, figurative sculptures present an ambiguous mix of bedding, bird, and machine-kid. The text-to-speech voices, created from real children's voices, beckon viewers to come closer. If participants engage further, the figures divulge current news stories and tell many bad jokes.
