Missing a Kick

Missing a kick | at the icebox door | It closed anyway Haiku by Jack Kerouac

Missing a kick gets both worlds mixed by a real kick. The visitor´s operation as well as the operation´s effect becomes displaced in real time in a virtual world. The ultimate kick becomes virtualized by multiplying the physiological characteristics of a chair and its effect gets utopian. This kick visualizes the opportunity of the result of an action and inworld visitors will kick chairs themselves and all chairs will trigger other wrongdoings and misconducts in the virtual environment, an interactive illustration of the haiku qoted above.
