Art that isn't there, August 26, 2011
by Victor Gijsbers (The Netherlands)

Written for the 1999 Art show, The Possibility of Life's Destruction is of course not a standard IF game. Instead, we have a piece of interactive poetry. The game starts with the lines

The black ant goes to the river;
what it sees there makes it shiver.

At that point, you need to type one of the words in the poem, although only some of them actually work. This will show you a new verse.

Potentially, such a set-up could work. Unfortunately, The Possibility of Life's Destruction contains only three verses. One of them is lifted from a song by Nine Inch Nails, another from a song by Peace, Love & Pitbulls. So there is almost nothing here, and what there is has been literally copied from others. Avoid.
