Read To Me
Presented by CultureHub
Read To Me creates a space that visually reacts to words being read aloud. CultureHub Resident Artist Maxwell Neely-Cohen conceived of the tool as something that could be applied to live readings the same way new media visuals are so often applied to music. Using Unity and Google Cloud's speech-to-text API, Max collaborated with writers, technologists, and game designers to prototype a visual-poetic synthesizer that transfigures spoken words into visuals.
Read To Me was developed within the CultureHub Residency Program.
