Other People Also Bought at 319 Scholes


Sebastian Schmieg and me are participating in the #FUTUREMYTH exhibition at 319 Scholes, curated by Christina Latina and Daniel Leyva, with a new piece called Other People Also Bought.

“Your Shopping Cart lives to serve. Give it purpose–fill it with books, CDs, DVDs, toys, electronics, and more.”
Starting with adding the first product ever sold on Amazon,Douglas Hofstadter’s Fluid Concepts & Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought, to our shopping cart, we created a script that automatically adds the next recommended item through Amazon’s “Other People Also Bought” algorithm to the same cart. The script starts as soon as someone is watching otherpeoplealsobought.

Participating artists include: Kari AltmannMatthew ArkellIain BallEnrico BocciolettiManuel Bürger,Sterling CrispinClaire L. EvansRyan Whittier Hale, Erin Henry, Emily JonesTaylor KuffnerPaul Laffoley,Kareem LotfyJonas Lund + Sebastian SchmiegEinar ÖbergRafaël RozendaalJasper SpiceroTanner Family, and Clement Valla + Erik Berglin. If you’re in NYC, the exhibition opens the 18th of April.
