– Storyland (2004), Nanette Wylde –
The computer-generated combinatorial story is one of the oldest forms of writing. Storyland, with its simple circus frame, plays with this tradition by performing recombination of the sort seen in cut-up and in Oulipian work. The system repeatedly plots amusingly repetitive stories, inviting the reader to consider, to read its scheme for composition.
