Tsushima Haikus, 2021, Machinima, digital video and manipulated audio recorded in Ghost of Tsushima, 1’

Ghost of Tsushima is a 2020 video game by Sucker Punch Productions, an action-adventure game telling a fictional story during the real first Mongol Invasion of Japan, set on an adapted version of the island of Tsushima. A haiku generator is fed key words about nature, life and simulations, and spits out a poem which is then sung by Google Translate back into Japanese. The english lines are rendered in Electroharmonix, a typeface made by Typodermic Fonts meant to mimic English letters as katakana script. Life goes on.
