Oh I like that. I had the ambition to move from laser prints and
photocopies to vinyl-cut lettering for displaying source code but
stencils are much better!

You could unroll loops in the code manually using templates for
different sections of the code. Or instantiate objects with other templates.

"Behind the bricks, the source code."

I'm now thinking about ways of combining Situationism and hacking.
Pychodebugging using the wrong source code or tools. User-Derive using
the wrong manual or attempting tasks that the software isn't designed
for. Hacking is Derive anyway...

And then there's the Beat approach; code cut ups, although some editing
will be required to remove syntax errors.
