Description (in English): 

This work uses the same basic structure as the author's earlier "Book Unbound".  

"Reveal Code" takes a hidden text corpus and creates a "generative performance" based on a collocation algorithm.  The audience can then choose phrases from the generative performance and set them aside on pages labeled Thesis, Antithesis, and Synthesis, where they can be edited freely.  Selections will also become part of the hidden corpus; the text will, over time, evolve to the audience's taste.

More information can be found in the author's article "Pressing the 'Reveal Code' Key", EJournal, March 1996: http://www.ucalgary.ca/ejournal/archive/ej-6-1.txt

Similarly, "Potentialities of Literary Cybertext" (April 1996, Visible Language) also explores this hypertext more deeply.

Technical notes: 

Requires OS 8.x+ and HyperCard Player.
