Web-Z-Crime is one of the events in CrimeZyland, the "Playland of Crime". It lets you web visitors speak your opinions about crime at the installation site. The event uses the MacIntosh speech synthesizer to speak your opinions typed below. You can watch physical visitors at the site as your words are spoken via the CrimeZyland webcam. There is approximately a 20 second delay between the time you send your words and they are spoken. Your words might come out in any of 15 different synthesizer personalities.
CrimeZyland in an interactive art installation open March 6-July 5, 1998 created by Stephen Wilson.
It is a "Playland of Crime" that explores the ways media make a circus of crime and and also highlights neglected ways of thinking about crime. It is both a physical installation in the San Francisco Art Commission Gallery Exploration: City Site location (across from San Francisco's City Hall) and an event on the Web.
The computer synthesizer will speak your words onto the street at the CrimeZyLand installation on Grove Stree across from San Francisco's City Hall
