I wish to make a book that would design itself.

This book is generated by a script that goes on generating forms that are added and subtracted throughout the book.

Every page, one more element is added, until the middle is reached. After that, one element is removed.

The problem with this is that this is all pure form. There is no content, narrative or even inherent meaning. I like the way it looks. But it doesn’t say anything.

How can we make something that is generated say something substancial, without the meaning being already there? How can me generate narrative?
