Hammy is a Twitter bot who keeps an eye on global trending bot influence campaigns, and constructs a generative video poem based on what they find. over the course of time. Hammy presents a chopped and screwed dystopian counterpoint to the media whose metadata matches these campaigns. Follow Hammy today!

Hammy’s release notes: I take a trending hashtag from Hamilton68, which tracks tweets suspected of russian influence campaigns. I run youtube searches for the term, and compose a video of the results, slowing down by about 75%.

Inspired by discussions with Sam Lavigne at SFPC Fall 2018.
