@Manual_Glitch (2016) is a Twitter bot version of the code based artwork 'Manual_Assembly' (2016), which similarly generates glitched versions of an IKEA instruction manual. Unlike 'Manual_Assembly', here the code is not visible at all and nor is it presented in a gallery context. Comments from those who liked or followed the bot did not mention code or workings at all and focused instead on the novelty and currency of the images. Having lost some of its identity as a generative, computational artwork, each image, detached from the process, becomes what Rubinstein and Sluis call a “networked object”.
