For the past two years I’ve been letting randomized computer programs decide what I do.

I believe giving in to chance is a way to liberate yourself from personal and social programming that traps you in a narrow sense of self.

My Trip

Starting in 2015 I let a computer decide where I lived and what I did for over two years. It sent me all over the world—everywhere from small town bars in rural Iowa to cat cafes in Taipei, Taiwan.

When the computer chose a location I would live there for roughly a month. Once there, the computer chose places to go, people to meet, and things to do within the selected city.
