Description

Medium: Aluminum, Plexiglass, brass trombone, aircraft compass, thermal printer, Arduino connected to a specific person’s Twitter account.

Dimensions: 48" x 24" x 18"

"Intrigued by the quantity and quality of one particular Twitter account, I wrote some codes so a small Arduino computer would follow a single person’s Twitter account.

The computer was wired to a small thermal printer and prints out each and every Tweet in real time.

During the four-year period between 2018-2021, the author wrote 24,047 tweets.

Then, on January 8th, 2021, the printer went silent."
