Disorganiser (image above of a disorganised version of this weblog) is another Firefox extension which allows the user to subvert existing websites however unlike Shiftspace this only occurs locally and can not be shared with other users of the extension.

Commissioned by the 27th Biennial of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana and created by Slovenian artist Jaka Železnikar, Disorganiser disorganises webpage content to give abstract results in similar ways to Shredder by Mark Napier.

The image of any give Web page (or the visible part of the Web page if it is bigger than the computer screen) is understood as a matrix that reproduces itself. The size, height, and width of the reproduction are transformed depending on the matrix. The reproduction is placed in a selected section of the matrix and becomes part of it. The process repeats several times. The result is an unrepeatable visual structure that is based on manipulations of the particular Web page.
