Typing McLuhan (iOS8)

For Typing McLuhan, I typed the first sentences of McLuhan's Understanding Media as quickly as I could, allowing for iOS8's auto-correction to fix my errors. I then fed the text to multiple instances of OS X's built-in text-to-speech function. Finally, I layered the resulting audio with my typing performance to construct the finished video piece.
