[-empyre-] critical fusion

Thanks for your opening post, Maurice.

I'm very interested in your notion of "critical fusion" as something that refers metaphorically referring to the atom (critical mass + atom fusion) as something close to explosion, producing the maximum of energy-. It might be argued by many that such critical fusion is inherent in art, as something naturally explosive, like the atom, waiting to be unleashed.

But my familiarity with your interactive environments suggests that you have something even more active in mind, contingent not simply on natural artistic forces but on the relation of critical thought to artistic experience. Would you mind saying a bit more about this?
