As part of my MFA Thesis, this prototype aimed to demonstrate that personalized, incalculable variation could be created within a tightly controlled system. Or, when it comes to interactive narrative - the author is not dead.
Why couldn’t the future of storytelling be analogous to this plant? It cannot exist without the participant’s presence (mirroring her silhouette) and in need of interaction (repeated watering), never existing as the same “thing” more than once. Yet, it will always be a specific type of plant with certain attributes… a DNA if you will. Like a good book you read more than once.
