About the Story
A perfumer keeps a private collection of scents, each tied to a memory. Decide what they mean.
The Gaming Philosopher
What we're looking at is a semiotic machine, a machine that doesn't so much generate meaning, as it embodies it. There is a sense in which it spews out texts that the reader gets to interpret; but even more crucially, it is itself the result of thousands of acts of interpretation of its author. And knowing about those acts of interpretation actually gives more meaning to the texts that are generated. The fascination of the piece -- at least for me, and one would suspect for the author as well -- lies in seeing how the choices of the author end up generating the texts that end up being generated.
