'[A] different type of subversion exploiting text-based media is Agam Andreas' Semantic Disturbances (http://rhizome.org/object.rhiz?36255). This work makes use of text generative techniques to present net citations assembled and chosen by the author. Textual fragments found on the Web are rearranged, deformed, or crushed, to produce deconstructed textual fragments as actual text.'[¹]
