This is lovely and meaningful and I have no doubt it's art; in a way it
relates obviously to role-playing games that exist also in theater; I
forget the woman's name in NY - she's done work leading people through the
city in and out of spaces. Johannes Birringer might know who I'm thinking
of. In a very different way, Foofwa d'Imobilite's Danceruns through cities
and city-spaces relate, That's at Foofwa.com and I think relates through a
different form of meditation/thinking/discussion. Anne Halprin comes to
mind. I think all of these relate, so much more. Of course it's all art,
all creative play, even Dungeons and Dragons, etc.; I'd even put the
average Zoom meaning into this. In a sense it's renaissance of laterality
and independent (networkd +/-) think -
