Abstract

LPDT2 is the metaverse incarnation of Roy Ascott's groundbreaking new media art work La Plissure du Texte/The Pleating of the Text, created in 1983 and shown in Paris at the Muse de l'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris during that same year. Whereas in 1983 the text was pleated by human storytellers; in the metaverse the storytellers show novel and unexpected attributes: an emergent textual architecture/geography, as well as a number of autonomous, coded, robot avatars which dwell inside this bizarre, literary landscape pleating the text by acting as communication nodes between the narrators of this new version of the tale.
