The Nonsense Laboratory is a series of playful tools for manipulating the way words sound and are spelled. Powered by Pincelate, a bespoke code library and machine I developed, the Laboratory invites you to adjust, poke at, mangle, curate, compress and elaborate the sounds of words in written text. The goal of the Nonsense Laboratory is to make it possible to play with spelling, the same way you play a musical instrument or with modeling clay. In addition to undertaking the creative direction and machine learning engineering, I wrote the front-end implementation. Visuals and user experience by Jenny Goldstick and Tim Szetela.
