“#achildinthedark – gripped with fear, comforts himself by singing”, a text project in reverse seeding. Tweeting the chapter of “Twittering Machine” from the book “A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia” by Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari (1980, translated by Brian Massumi) whenever @achildinthedark wants to sing. The text gets transcribed and re-typed into a stream of tweets, recreating the thoughts as 140-character fragments to be read bottom-up. The tweets were automatically copied and archived in the Library of Congress, as part of their general twitter archive till Dec 2017. Stopped on 25th of July 2023 due to Musks rebranding of Twitter to X, canceling the bird.
