Player on the Quantum Stage

Shards of amphitheater seating radiate outward

“Player on the Quantum Stage” is “metaphorically planted” at the bottom of the whirlpool in Edgar Allan Poe’s “A Descent into the Maelstrom.” A “Player” storyline conceit involves a sequence of conversations between digital avatars and Guzzardo. The conversations scroll-out on a Giovanni Piranesi Carceri d’invenzione party wall. The scrolling wall serves as both backdrop and Chat Room in an anticipated theatrical production.

“Player” is spawned in part from thousands of pages of stamp filed legal documents. It is an olfactory archive – a code-smell library about ROT. How the guardrails rotted, fell one by one by one, domino like, until we find ourselves center stage dancing in a Maelstrom with a “Superintelligent Avatar-Kin”.
