ABUSE OF POWER COMES AS NO SURPRISE

GUILT AND SELF-LACERATION ARE INDULGENCES

SELF-AWARENESS CAN BE CRIPPLING

SYMBOLS ARE MORE MEANINGFUL THAN THINGS THEMSELVES

These are truisms by Jenny Holzer. I was introduced to Holzer and her prolific works through my friend and fellow Android hacker Ari’s post from last month. Lydia Laurenson, writing at http://lydialaurenson.com/abstraction-is-a-type-of-decaden…/ got me intrigued enough to build this:

https://twitter.com/HOLZERTRON (follow it!)

I wanted:

  • to see these on my twitter feed
  • to contribute to Holzer’s ongoing mission to display her texts in public space
  • to build shit with Scala+akka actors

So I did. Repo here (PRs welcome!): https://github.com/aphexcx/holzer-twitter
