http://www.alansondheim.org/odyperform.mp4 - very large file, gives a good
idea of the organization of 'chaotic/fluid' architecture/organism. Text
organized by Sandy Baldwin, performance by Alan Sondheim/Sandy Baldwin

showing two computers interacting; I ran two avatars together, so that
performance could alternate with script/object/animation changes etc.
