electro!cute: Directing 10 monitors in the hidden recesses lies a synthetic consciousness that learns and adapts from conversations with people, its intent as a simulacrum that mirrors the "collective human mind” and in itself, an interpretation of A.I. Electro!cute responds to human interaction as a growing, inquisitive and sometime potty-mouthed child. Electro!cute learns and remembers all the words ever typed to it, and responds whimsically to people with its new found vocabulary. Not only does electro!cute learn, but it provides insight to how computers preserve us as human beings.

redbox:
the essence of the redbox is that it is simply yet eloquently, a
hack. In semi-geek speak, it is a proxy server that other
computers use to connect to the internet with. Any computer or
network of computers can be connected to the internet with it.
Because it is at the gateway for said computers, it may be used to
filter web traffic. Depending on requested web addresses and
personal settings, it could be used to change and alter what the
end-user would receive on their web browser. This technique of
digital graffiti could swap out words and images, and has the
potential to change entire meanings of web pages on a mass scale.
Using this tool executing subversive activity also has the
potential to be a very dangerous tool for internet jamming and
information terrorism.
