Shirley Bassey Mixed Up

Shirley Bassey Mixed Up is an experimental illustrated 14-page networked; generative biography, following Shirley Bassey’s career. The illustrations are network generated, built dynamically from Yahoo searches. Through specifying different searches and playing with the customisation options, readers create an illustration for each page of the story.

By pulling in data from the Internet and manipulating/ transforming it within a story, this work can be described as a networked narrative. The structure is basically a traditional (linear) 14-page story built on top of a generative composition tool, that uses Internet search data as its input.
