The Unbearable Lightness of Roy is an emergent infomorphic identity, generated by a crowdsourced cross-platform system. Experiencers encounter the piece through various avenues (public installation, posted facebook login, etc.) and are asked to help the personality figure out how to exist. Through the feedback of the experiencers, “Roy” will start to have an internet presence that will take on a life of its own through a demomorphic process, culminating in a live performance incorporating both audio and visual aspects of “Roy’s” digital presence.
