The Narrative Contingencies web site allows participants to construct their own narratives - at the intersection of chance and interpretation.

Participants are encouraged to submit images and texts which will, over time, replace those of the initial Narrative Contingencies data base. Through the combined agency of user interaction and chance operations the data base will continuously evolve -- eventually experiencing a total regeneration, displacement or "sea change." A global state - the data base - will emerge from the local interactions of random selectionand individual acts of interpretation in the context of a constantly evolving system. Any current state of the system will express the subjective perspective of each and all of its participating users.

When language and representation are structured from a single, dominant point-of-view, the position of the subject remains fixed. If the point-of-view of the symbolic can be distributed and multiplied - then experience itself might be altered.
