Generative theatre after "Sizilischer Brief an den Mann im Mond" by Ernst Jünger

"It is this phantasm of the ideal performance of the text or the image, the possibility of correcting endlessly, which produce in the "creative artist" this vertige of interactivity with his own object, alongside the anxious vertige at not having reached the technological limits of his possibilities. In fact, it is the (virtual) machine which is speaking you, the machine which is thinking you. [...]
You are the questioner and, at the same time, the automatic answering device of the machine. Both coder and decoder - you are, in fact, your own terminal.
That is the ecstasy of communication."

Jean Baudrillard
