METAVERSE is text
METAVERSE is self-reflexive
“A state of continuous construction and reconstruction . . . where anything goes that can be negotiated. Each reality of self gives way to reflexive questioning, irony, and ultimately the playful probing of yet another reality. The center fails to hold” -Sherry Turkle, Life On The Screen
METAVERSE is a dance
"Less an object than an event, the digital text emerges as a dance between artificial and human intelligences, machine and natural languages, as these evolve together through time . . ."
- N.Katherine Hayles, "The Time of Digital Poetry"
METAVERSE is you, embodied
"The move to online goes hand in hand with the fullest possible expression of self in the online environment: at this time, the avatar. "
-Edward Castronova, Exodus to the Virtual World
