Frankentweet is an interactive project about our complex relationship to technology.
You’re on an Alaskan mountaintop connected by GPS and a smart phone, are you alone? A controversy or an unanswered question comes up at the dinner table, how long before someone does a Google search?
Frankentweet is a wry attempt to document our lives in a rapidly changing landscape of digital devices and technological advancement. Based in Alaska, but reaching beyond, Frankentweet is about the power and pitfalls of our connected shared lives, our sense of place, our memories, and identities, the way we teach and learn and our hunger to innovate. We’re integrating the project director’s name: “Frankenstein" and raising questions about the repercussions and possibilities of our creations. In an Eating Alaska style of inquisitiveness and exploration we’re researching, gathering stories, and generating conversation. The format? It is evolving. Frankentweet includes short videos, podcasts, social media and artistic interruptions.

We've got questions and you probably do too. Who benefits from the technical revolution? How are our behaviors changing as zones of privacy do too? What are we really sharing and to whom? What is the next addictive app? How can we use this digital revolution to improve our lives?
