Join artist Tyler Coburn and art historian Katie Anania, postdoctoral fellow at the Morgan Library and Museum, for a conversation about the theory and practice of chance- and machine-generated texts. Through a combination of reading aloud and intimate discussion, Coburn and Anania will explore what it means to be a reader in the digital age.
