STUDIO Lecture: Robin Sloan
November 1, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry
Robin Sloan is an author and technologist. His first novel, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, was a New York Times Best Seller, translated into more than twenty languages. The paperback edition of his latest novel, Sourdough, was released in September 2018. Robin’s next novel is being written in collaboration with an AI.
Robin experiments with, and writes about, computational tools for text generation and manipulation. He calls himself a “media inventor”: someone, he writes, “primarily interested in content (words, pictures, ideas) who also experiments with new tools and new formats.” Unsatisfied with the formats available to them by default, “media inventors feel compelled to make the content and the container.”
