Artist Statement:


    This is a labyrinth from which the user cannot easily leave once inside. The exit is an enigma for the user, who must operate interactive navigation buttons and commands that do not work as expected. The goal is to reveal to the user the myth of collaborative computing and demonstrate the truth of persuasive computing. Users are invited to know that they are always induced and led by any interface to a previously determined group of situations and possibilities rather than ever deciding about anything.
