The text for Cotton AI Yeo (2020) was adapted from a radio interview with a presenter and a portrait painter. I heard the interview live at my ex's parents' house and didn't enjoy it. Unable to forget it though, I found it online the following week and played it into Google Docs using the speech to text function. I found the resulting inaccuracies far more interesting and humorous. After realising I wanted the text to be interactive, I used Bootstrap to code the webpage; including three buttons to rotate random quotes for multiple text combinations. I made the background gif using stills from a subsequent video where the artist painted the presenter's portrait.
