These ‘epigraphs’ are taken from texts autogenerated by Markovian Sytstem (Joël Vacheron and Aris Xanthos), using a variant of Claude Shannon’s algorithm for writing what he called ‘approximations to English’. A program, written by Aris Xanthos was ‘fed’ with the full content of the Shaping and Sharing publication and asked to produce a series of new short texts in response, from which this extract has been excerpted. The result offers a computational reinterpretation and reordering of the publication’s essays and writer’s arguments, which have been ‘rethought’, reshaped and recombined according to the software’s logic.
