Composition 2008 No. 10+n: “Write a line and read it”

* please allow to load

This was a simple attempt to integrate the grammar file of a RiTa project into the meaning of the artwork, to create an “interesting” grammar text that was still functional. Using a grammar that feeds back into itself, this is a conceptual piece which “follows in the lineage” of La Monte Young’s famous instructional artwork Composition 1960 No. 10: “Draw a straight line and follow it.”

Here is the grammar file:

{
<write a line and read it>
<write> <a> <line> <and> <read> <it>
}

{
<write>
write a line and read it
}

{
<a>
write a line and read it
}

{
<line>
write a line and read it
}

{
<and>
write a line and read it
}

{
<read>
write a line and read it
}

{
<it>
write a line and read it
}
