You have to want to interact with interactive works or they go nowhere, because you drive them. Interactive works aren’t such that you simply click the ‘play’ button and away it goes without you having to do anything. So interactive works have to engage your curiosity, your desire, your want, your drive, your sense of what’s engaging. Or they go nowhere. Because you have to drive them wherever they go. It’s your drive that takes them there. It’s your drive and the author’s drive in offering and creating something that can be driven in interesting directions. The idea of Arteroids is to drive poetry and desire in dangerous directions far away from the usual notions of what poetry is and can be. Arteroids is the battle of poetry against itself and the forces of dullness.
