Media Artist Katsuki Nogami: Trump Bot vs. Shitpost Bot

And now, something different: What happens when Trump and a shitposter have a conversation? Orangereel Creative Collective’s technologist and media artist, Katsuki Nogami, modified two Rekion Home voice assistants. One is the Trump Bot, which speaks using Donald Trump’s tweets. The other is the Shitpost Bot, which speaks from Yahoo! Answers and a Twitter  shitposting account.

What follows is a weirdly believeable exchange between the two machines. Whether you see it as a commentary on USA politics, on modern discourse, or on a future of robots conversing idly without human input, the video is a fun piece of experimental, generative art.

We challenge all creatives to apply Katsuki Nogami’s unique talents to their next campaign. Let’s talk!
