Title: Polysemy Machine (2020).
Artist: Konstantinos Papacharalampos (London).
Concept: Texts in newspapers websites or on smartphone screens are a powerful tool for quickly manipulating a politically charged reality – especially when Twitter and other social media platforms influence democracies globally. ‘Polysemy Machine’ assesses the situation, with its outcome being informed by the reader/performer.
