Gisle Frøysland’s Anti-corruption-code-my-circumstances project is an autonomous algorithm that randomly reads best practice fragments from the well-known book Anti-corruption: Ethics and Compliance Handbook for Business / Ética anticorrupción y elementos de cumplimiento. Handbook for Business.
It is a widely distributed and easily accessible document on crime prevention and compliance in business organisations. The book was jointly coordinated by the secretariats of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the World Bank.
In Anti-corruption-code-my-circumstances, the reader software gradually corrupts the text, randomly picking phrases with the word ‘anti’ in them, until ‘anti’ is the only word left.
