Live Chat conversations are eavesdropped upon and then visually presented in a 3d virtual environment, as a language synthesizer with a permanently changing voice recites chat dialogues out loud. It is possible to navigate between texts, pass through them, and to observe them from all sides. By selecting textparts they will be mixed together and a kind of poetry results from the combination of algorithmic word patterns and their content: words that originate from chat rooms. The different languages provide different sounds and melodies. As two texts are always simultaneously recited in different languages, with different parameters (of synthesis), even more differentiated rhythms and melodies result. The more mixed the texts are, the more ordered they become.
