File this one under modern art: Jamie Brew, head writer for Clickhole, the Onion A.V. Club’s sister site, is bringing a collection of texts, songs and narrated fragments created by using a predictive text emulator to Gallery5 for First Fridays. In a statement, Brew says the project arose “from some experimental writing using the predictive text feature of my smartphone, which supplies three suggestions of likely next words for you to type. … The program is ‘memoryless’ in that it only models very local, word-to-word patterns. It has no understanding of broad structure, or even of whole sentences. So, the arc of the piece remains still somewhat under my control, even though my word choices are limited to repetitions of sequences that have already occurred. To me, this is an exaggerated version of how language sometimes seems to operate anyway.” Live music will be provided by Brew, Bonus Roll, the Folly and Buddy List. The event takes place on Friday, July 7, from 6 p.m. to midnight. Free. gallery5arts.org.
