TL;DR: Nathan Walker's 'Action Score Generator' (ASG), an online writing machine that randomly arranges words into six-word-length performance scores, belongs to a lineage of language-based artworks and practices that relinquish authorial control to the viewer.
Abstract: This article discusses Nathan Walker's 'Action Score Generator' (ASG), an online writing machine that randomly arranges words into six-word-length performance scores.

This is articulated in relation to Christopher Strachey’s ‘Love Letter Generator’ and other permutational and computational writing programmes that use randomness and code to produce writing in modular forms.
