The Reading Lantern
A 2600-year-old Chinese folktale is sent into the cloud of speech detection algorithms while a parent reads an illustrated book to their child. The Reading Lantern recognises the words as they are read out loud, animating its colours to reveal the characters and landscape of each page — creating a special atmosphere to accompany the story telling. This project was created with Tammara Leites in collaboration with Popy Matigot.
