Artist Statement:

    Viewers navigate through a maze of three hundred interconnected postcards representing a diverse range of topics. Each postcard contains approximately five hotspot or links, each of which, when selected by the viewer, leads to a different image. The hotspots links are based on literal, semiotic, psychoanalytic, metaphoric or other connections. A database algorithm keeps track of each move, weaving a second level story based on the sequence of the viewer’s choices. This statistical analysis, or metaphoric trace is constantly updated and adjusted.
