Description (in English): 

In English and Spanish, by Chris Joseph in collaboration with artist Maria Colino, Dadaventuras is an experiment in aleatory narrative, using comic book conventions to generate stories from 8 distinct but overlapping perspectives.

The language of our narrative is hybrid (from the greek 'hybris', outrage or violation): composed of parts from different languages, in this case our own blend of 'spanglish'. This intentionally recalls the Dadaists use of nonsense to express dissatisfaction with a world society that continued its insane addiction to war. The user can also write their own text to use as the basis for the generated narratives, or use one of 8 classic texts, or turn the text off completely and make the story up in their head.
