The textual part of ‘About All Of Us’ is based on numerous texts found in the ‘About (Us)’ section of designers’ and design studios’ websites in and around Vienna. Usually their work, their profile and their methods are described there. By analyzing word counts and word combinations, an alternative text was generated bearing similar statistical properties as the original, but lacking in semantic coherence. By removing the connections that tie single words into a meaningful whole, the new text highlights the superficial essence and vision of these descriptive texts. Similar techniques are used in the creation of email spam to automatically generate large amounts of natural-looking text. Our studio’s text is in there, too.
