// SPHIROS -- interactive fiction w/text, video, music (Sigur Ros), animation
/// built with Adobe Flash & Jason Nelson's WithinSpace interface.
// "SPHIROS" presents the fictional tale of what happens when a timequake creates a world that really is open source.
/// Art is in the arrangement -- The screen is a projection of infinitesimally small physical components onto a wall that we can manipulate. If we press our fists against it, as with a door, we may hammer away to no avail-- now we open it as a curtain and peer into the room beyond. We construct narrative as a synthesis of our own experience in combination with an experience of the materials that the author presents to us. We pick up a book and we put it down: narrative cannot be so contained.
