The Web is a global text. The hypothetical character, whose speech tends towards this global text, the sum of all speeches of mankind, is called Gogol.
Originally GogolChat was conceived as a multi-user chat where this fictitious character lives. But contrary to the usual chatterbots, it cannot be considered as purely virtual. Gogol IS the web. He parses your words, mixes them with the whole web, digests and spits back.
After the completion of this work, the chat was “infiltrated” by Jimpunk. Since then a quasi-permanent happening shifts the chat beyond the dimension of meaning and communication. Finally GogolChat became a collaborative piece mixing a purely textual work - the original GogolChat - with scripts and visuals changed by Jimpunk live.
