Lila, the cosmic game, is as much about what happens in the universe as it is about how we feel about those events. The degree to which feelings happen to us or we inflict them upon ourselves shapes our existence. The degree to which events happen to us or our perception defines them shapes our existence. Is it fate or a fundamentally creative, artistic act?
The nervous system of Random [Fortune] Generator is a database of events, ranging from the grand & cosmic, to the microcosmic & mundane—the physiological, environmental, psychological, and social experiences that directly surround us. Sometimes they are real, and sometimes they are not. Participants play an emotion game, in which the interaction predicts—or conflicts with— how they feel about experiences in their own lives. How they choose to respond drives a creative act.
