Momentary Zine in Bucharest!


Hackers & Designers was invited to present the Momentary Zine at the first edition of a great festival in Bucharest: Automata.

During the afternoon we experimented with possibilities of co-producing a publication instantly – utilising an interactive publishing tool.

How does it work? You speak. It prints! With the help of speech to text technology the tool translates spoken word to text. Simultaneously an algorithm runs an automated image search, querying the spoken words and adding the images accordingly. The outcome: A printed publication!

The immediacy of the voice as the main content generator and the possibility of starting a dialogue with the technology serve as vehicle for participation – enabling conversations about unusual publishing methods and the (im)possibilities of automation processes.

You could just walk in anytime during the day and join the workshop!
