Twitch on Twitch

The “Twitch on Twitch” works are recent experiments with Open Broadcasting Software (OBS) chat windows pulled from the the most popular broadcasters on the streaming platform. For me, it’s fascinating to watch the cascade pouring up alongside the main window. As an amateur streamer who tries hard to listen and be attentive to anyone who happens to show up, it’s awkward and often uncomfortable to watch this cacophony of conversation. Are these conversations though? Or simply comments and emoticons bouncing back and forth? Is this engagement or just affirmation that someone is listening? Or are they all bots?…

At this time, these works are strictly “in progress” and don’t represent a finished product.
