NPR laughtrack

2018 - 2019

The NPR laughtrack was created by collecting NPR talk shows and running them through a python script to isolate and extract the laughter shared between host and guest. Removed from its original context, the distilled laughter becomes uncomfortable and disjointed. It is played through an FM transmitter to a series of radios scattered throughout the exhibition space.
