The code of the project is resituated by the texts that respond to it, that co-evolve with it.  Traditionally, that might include external documentation but also outside commentary on the software or even the discourse on the programming paradigms within the code, not to mention other code.  Arguably, a piece of code becomes meaningful only in the atmosphere of other code objects.  The resonance of the source code can also be affected by codework.

Codework is a genre of poetry that plays with the symbols of programming.  Whether executable or not, codework renders the coding signs poetic or reveals the poetry of these signs.
